Seattle University School of Law is hosting the ABA Law Student Division Region 12 Client Counseling Competition on Friday, February 17, 2012, and Saturday, February 18, 2012. This year’s topic is Education and School 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 Friday from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm (with dinner to follow), and the semifinal round and the final round on Saturday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Your help would really 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 ABA Region 12 Client Counseling Competition, please let me know by Friday, January 27, 2012. You may e-mail me at LehmanR1@Seattleu.edu.
Dinner and lunch will be served at the competition. Also, as the competition gets a little closer, we will send you additional information and instructions.
Thank you for your time and cooperation. I really appreciate it. We could not run a successful competition without your help.
