B. 3rd Adv. Ram Jethmalani Client Counselling Competition 2015

When you think of a lawyer’s skills you think of arguing, maybe even a little convincing. But most people forget counselling. You may ask how do we counsel? The art of counselling comes into play while dealing with clients. They come to you seeking solutions, they want you to solver their problems their way.

Client counselling is the vital skill where a lawyer not only shows the client the legal implications of their actions, but also a solution that pleases all.

Do you think you could help a stubborn or secretive client? One who says My way or the highway!

If you want to find out, come to Symbhav 2015‘s Adv. Ram Jethmalani Client Counselling Competition and try your skill as a lawyer faced with challenging legal issues and clients to be held from February 20, 2015 to February 22, 2015.
