2019 Deakin
Client Interview Competition

The Deakin Law Students’ Society Client Interview introduces Students to the inner workings of how to ascertain the relevant facts from a client. Some clients are forthcoming, some are cagey and some simply will not stop talking. The aim of the client interview is to equip students with the skills to keep their client on track, so that the most important information is obtained and relevant advice can then be given.

Never competed before? Not a problem, this year we are running the Client Interview workshop on the 28th of March to give students a crash course in how to interview even the most difficult of clients.

Furthermore, you can read the Client Interview Handbook available below to provide further guidance to students. In addition to developing skills that will be invaluable within the workplace, the Client Interview requires minimal preparation and very little legal knowledge, therefore if you’re in your first or fifth year there is simply no excuse not to compete.
