SENIOR CLIENT INTERVIEW - SEMESTER ONE 2020
WHAT IS SENIOR CLIENT INTERVIEW?
The Client Interview Competition provides unique skills and valuable experience in the context of meeting with clients. Going into the legal profession, client interviewing skills are highly valued by firms.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The competition is in an interview format, where teams of two act as solicitors meeting with their client. The interview is the first between the client and the solicitors, and teams should be able to build a relationship with the client while also identifying the client’s problem, relevant facts to the case, and determining a suitable course of action.
Teams should also make sure that they address all the formalities of a client interview, such as discussing the fee schedule.
Teams will receive a memorandum before the competition starts, providing a theme for the interview and allowing teams to brainstorm questions for the client.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
The competition is specifically designed to help students learn important skills in interviewing, client relations and identifying legal and ethical issues.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Students in their final or penultimate year are to compete in the Senior Client Interview.
