I don't think I have the best handle on LEEWS so feel free to chip in, but this is what I think:
1) Identify conflict pairs - who against whom, what does each side want
-this is usually pretty quick, check out the call of the question, that should be able to guide you.
-Sometimes there are hidden ones in the question itself, but it depends on your prof's style, if they are the "hide the ball type"
2) Identify relevant premises (i.e. the Issues, the laws) for each side
-take it piecemeal: find an issue, connect with the relevant facts, tease it out. Rinse and repeat
3) Identify the real issues
-dont spend too much time analyzing issues that are obvious, get to the real issues
