Congratulations to the Client Counseling Winners!

The Client Counseling Competition simulates an initial legal consultation between two attorneys and a prospective client. Two-member teams of students acting as attorneys interview the client and provide a preliminary assessment of the client’s case.

The assessment explains the attorneys’ understanding of the client’s legal position and provides the client with possible courses of action. This competition provides students an opportunity to fine-tune communication and interpersonal skills essential to establishing a rapport with clients. It is vital competitors learn to develop this rapport so as attorneys they can obtain the information required for effectively analyze a client’s issues. The competition is open to all law students.
