Covering all aspects of the client interview, Conference Skills is designed to help trainee barristers develop the key written, interpersonal, and case-work skills required to conduct successful client conferences.

Special attention is devoted to skills of questioning, listening, and advising, to ensure the trainee barrister is well equipped to maximise a client conference in terms of gathering information and giving advice.

Featuring numerous how-to-do-it guides, worked examples, and realistic case documentation, the manual offers practical step-by-step guidance so that the trainee barrister can approach any client conference with confidence.
