Law Students Compete by Counseling Clients

Last Saturday morning, January 21, 2006, 24 George Mason School of Law students met Mr. Davis, a hypothetical client, as part of the annual Client Counseling Competition. The topic of this year's competition, hosted by the Law School's Trial Advocacy Association, was "Employers and Employees."

The competitors, organized into 12 two-person teams, received a brief description of the client's problem and then proceeded to interview the client and conduct a post-consultation meeting with one another.

The judges selected two teams, Elizabeth Bradshaw and Alexis Conway and Derek Bottcher and Hugh Rosen, to advance to the Client Counseling Regional Round on Feb. 11 in Richmond.
