Legal Interviewing — A How to Guide is for those who wish to learn how to conduct an initial legal interview effectively.


The importance of good interviewing is explained and the book includes strategies for effective interviewing, handy checklists, clear and practical examples for analysis, and exercises for practice and review. Common mistakes in interviews are highlighted.


The text is written within a clear theoretical framework. Lawyers are encouraged to see the interview as a dynamic whole and also as part of the entire process in which effective practices are married with knowledge of substantive law and with an understanding of various ethical precepts.

The work will be invaluable for practitioners who need to acquire or enhance the skills required to build and maintain client rapport in professional practice.
