Judges Needed for SU's Client Counseling Competition

02/09/2013 8:00 AM | Anonymous
Seattle University is hosting the ABA Law Student Division Client Counseling Competition on Saturday, February 9th, 2013. This year’s topic is employment law and we expect 12 teams to compete.

We are looking for attorneys, judges, and counselors to judge the preliminary rounds of the competition on Saturday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and the semifinal round 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Your help would greatly contribute to the success of this competition.

The Client Counseling Competition promotes greater knowledge and interest among law students in the preventive law and counseling functions of law practice and encourages students to develop interviewing, planning, and analytical skills in the lawyer-client relationship in the law office. The competition simulates a law office consultation in which student lawyers conduct an interview with a “client.” Following the interview, the student lawyers explain how they would proceed further in the hypothetical situation.

If you are interested and available to judge the Client Counseling Competition, please let me know with the times and rounds for which you are available. CLE credits will be provided.

Breakfast and lunch will be served at the competition.
As the competition nears, we will send judges additional information and instructions.

Thank you for your time and cooperation. We could not run a successful competition without your help!
