Law Central is an autonomous body initiated to provide a platform to law students where they can actively participate in various legal activities and competitions. Law is called a jealous mistress and there is no room in it for the lazy and mediocre. We intend to bring out the best amongst students by fostering in them a sense of competitiveness. Our vision is to inculcate feeling of professionalism and responsibility in budding lawyers. Moreover we prosper to create a network of legal community to facilitate interactions among lawyers to today.
The coalition is organising Online Client Counselling Competition, 2020 to highlight the necessity of social distancing despite bringing in the students together to a competitive platform.
ABOUT THE NATIONAL CLIENT COUNSELLING COMPETITION
The Client Counseling Competition promotes greater knowledge and interest among law students in the preventative law and counselling functions of law practice. It also encourages students to develop interviewing, planning, and analytical skills in the lawyer- client relationship in the law office. Interviewing and advising are a significant part of most lawyer’s work. Too often, it is assumed that lawyers have the listening and questioning skills needed to conduct an effective interview.
Regrettably, not all lawyers possess these skills. The Competition provides an opportunity for a valuable educational and cultural interchange between students, law teachers, and legal practitioners. The Competition simulates a law office consultation in which a team of two law students, acting as lawyers, are consulted by a client. The subject-matter of the client’s problem could include anything ranging from Family Law, Business law, Criminal law, Contract Law and allied subjects. It aims to encourage students to develop interviewing & planning abilities and analytical skills in the lawyer-client relationship in the law office and the corporate structure.
