Gerard Maye Client Interviewing Competition 2013
Now more than ever, legal students need inter-personal skills as well as knowledge of the law in order to be successful. The University of Brighton’s annual Legal Client Interviewing Competition seeks to address this need by developing the skills necessary for effective interviewing.
The theme for this year’s competition was commercial contracts. The competition was sponsored by Gerard Maye Legal.
Working in pairs, competitors took on the role of solicitors advising their clients. The competing teams were judged by two industry professionals: Defence Solicitor, Gerard Maye and Civil Litigator, John Searby both from Gerard Maye Legal.
Congratulations to the winning pair of Law with Business LLB students, Emily Titman and Rachel Braitwaite, who were rewarded with book tokens and the opportunity to complete a work placement with Gerard Maye Legal. They will also represent the University of Brighton at The Law Society’s National Client Interviewing Competition in January 2014.
Runners up were Jordan Powell and Dan Chapman, both Postgraduate Diploma in Law (CPE) students.
