Interviewing Skills for Legal Professionals explores the crucial components of the client-centred interviewing process that enables legal professionals to master the art of gaining critical information from clients and witnesses. Readers come to appreciate how the techniques of effective interviewing create the means by which to obtain the raw data necessary to provide excellent representation for clients.

The exercise of such competencies not only increases client satisfaction with the legal process, but also fosters better results by involving clients in resolving their own legal concerns. Many "problem" interview situations are explored, thus providing guidance on how to deal with difficult situations and avoid pitfalls.
