Featuring numerous how-to-do-it guides, worked examples, and realistic case documentation throughout the manual offers practical, step-by-step guidance on the effective preparation, implementation and conclusion of client conferences ensuring that the trainee barrister can approach any client conference with confidence. Full guidance is also provided on managing legal issues, and developing the social and professional skills needed to handle clients and their legal problems. Specifically designed for use on the Bar Professional Training Course, Conference Skills is also a useful source of reference for junior practitioners in the early years of practice.
