Client Counseling Competition

Posted on Sep 30, 2015 in 2015-2016, Client Counseling, Gallery | Comments Off on Client Counseling Competition

Client Counseling Competition

  The 2015 Client Counseling competition will be held from October 12-14. If you are interested in participating, please sign up outside of the BOA office. Even if you do not have a partner, sign up individually and BOA will pair you with someone. The competition is limited to the first 15 teams that sign up.   Some things about the Competition: · It’s the LAST competition of the semester!! · It’s very easy and requires little to no prep work. · A great way to earn BOA points. · If you play the role of the client, you get free dinner! The Client Counseling Competition simulates the moment a potential client walks into your law firm and has a legal problem for you to address. This competition requires no legal knowledge in a certain area. Two-member teams of students acting as attorneys interview the client and provide a preliminary assessment of the client’s case. BOA is in need of volunteers to play the role of clients and bailiffs (BOA points included). Students interested in volunteering as either a client or bailiff can sign up outside the BOA office. There will be more information about the competition at the Informational Meeting on Monday, October, 5th at 1pm in Room 5. We hope to see you...
