King Hall Hosts ABA Client Counseling Competition Next Weekend

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 10, 2012

Next weekend brings another exciting event to King Hall.  From the event listing for the ABA Client Counseling competition:

King Hall will host the American Bar Association's Regional Client Counseling Competition for Region 9 on the weekend of Feb. 18-19, 2012. Each year, teams of law students from all over the western United States compete in mock client intake meetings where they are evaluated on their ability to critically analyze cases at their inception while establishing a working relationship with new clients.

This year, client-actors will come to the 12 participating teams with issues pertaining to K-12 education law. The top six teams (as ranked by the judges) will advance to the semifinals, held that afternoon. From there, the remaining three teams will compete on Sunday morning for a chance to represent our region in the ABA National Client Counseling Competition in Durham, NC.

Judges for the competition, particularly local practitioners specializing in education law or with client intake experience, will provide important input to participants.

Best wishes to the King Hall Negotiations Team (KHNT) for a GREAT event next weekend!!!
