How should you answer complex essay questions

Postby megamega88 » Fri May 05, 2017 3:42 pm

If an essay question requires you to apply multiple rules to a fact pattern, how should you structure such an answer?
For instance, if a fact pattern for Wills, Trusts, and Estates implicates requirements for a will and requirements for a trust, and rap, how would you write the rules and then how would you apply those multiple rules to the fact pattern?
