Client Interview is an extremely important in real life legal practice; the skills you learn in this competition are highly transferable to interviews in any field. Teams are given minimal, sometimes no information about what legal problem they will face beforehand. Each team is introduced to their client and then has 40 minutes to gather information about their legal dispute and then give advice and come to a conclusion. Similar to negotiation, there is also a period of post-interview analysis with the judges where questions may be asked regarding strategy. This competition requires less preparation and less legal analysis, but you will need to develop excellent teamwork skills and an ability to think quickly on your feet.
