The use of cases has been recognised as an effective mode of imparting knowledge. The effectiveness of this impartation process' will not onily depend on the lecturer (style, confidence, knowledge, experiences, and many more) but also on the quality of the case itself. Of ,course it requires that the case must meet the necessary qualities that enable it to impart the knowledge that it meant to deliver. Academicians, having gone through the process of writing umpteen times of lecture notes and seminar papers who strongly believe that writing a case would be another of those routine chores then they are in for some surprises. This paper will discuss and share some of the common defaults that academicians (not familiar with the art of case writing), make in writing a case. A short case sample will be used for illustrations.
