Richard E. Day Client Counseling Competition

Faculty Consultant: Professor Danielle Cover

The Client Counseling Competition provides an opportunity for law students to develop valuable skills in interacting with and proposing solutions for clients. Each team of two attorneys attempts to obtain the legally relevant information from the background factual context and then supplies the client with a preliminary summary of the client's legal position and the client's possible actions. The competition emphasizes communication and other interpersonal skills essential to sound representation of clients.

The Casper law firm of Williams, Porter, Day & Neville sponsors the intra-school competition. The National Client Counseling Competition is sponsored by the Law School Division of the American Bar Association.
