Client Counseling (S)

LAW JD 862

The purpose of this seminar is to provide students with the opportunity to develop client counseling skills needed to deal with a wide variety of clients and their various problems. The focus of the seminar is on the way in which students are able to guide, listen, and counsel a client rather than on the correctness of the legal analysis. This seminar is designed for students to learn by engaging in mock client counseling interviews. Accordingly, much of the time will be filled with practice interviews and discussion of strategies for how to navigate client interviews and meetings. This class is designed for the "real world" and will also prepare students for the ABA client counseling competition. ENROLLMENT LIMIT: 18 students. GRADING NOTICE: All students will be graded CR/NC/H. NOTES: This seminar does not satisfy the Upper-class Writing Requirement.
