Tulane Law School

Tulane Law School strives to create opportunities that enhance our students' practical skillsets in order to better prepare them for their jobs following law school. Through partnerships with local legal professionals, alumni, employers and law school faculty, Tulane Law works to supplement the classroom experience with programs such as Intersession "Boot Camp", externships, judicial clerkships and pro bono opportunities.

Client Interviewing and Counseling

Course Description
The course will focus on the legal principles and skills involved in interviewing clients and witnesses and counseling clients in the course of litigation, dispute resolution, and decision making. Establishing an effective lawyer-client relationship requires that you gather information relevant to decisions to be made by your client, analyze the decision to be made, advise your client about the decision, and implement the decision. Additional topics include addressing cultural differences and interviewing and counseling clients with mental and physical disabilities, children, criminal defendants, and organizational clients. Students will participate in simulations of interviewing and counseling and will discuss the related ethical and professionalism concerns underlying the lawyer-client relationship.
