The course will seek to develop in students the critical skills necessary for a practicing lawyer in government, corporate or private practice to (a) advise, persuade and communicate with commercial, institutional and individual clients, (b) develop and present admissible evidence gathered through the effective use of a range of established interviewing methods (e.g. the FBI interview protocol), and (c) manage the attorney-client relationship in the context of key ethical and legal considerations. Throughout the course, defined exercises with practicing lawyers in the role of client, client-witness, fact witness, adverse witness, government and corporate whistle-blower, investigator and other roles will allow students to learn and test these skills in real world situations.
