Practising Law Institute (PLI) maintains a deep commitment to the public service work of the legal profession. PLI also strives to be a leader in instructional innovation via the recently announced Interactive Learning Center.

Please join PLI as they present a new Interactive Learning Center program, The Art & Science of Interviewing Pro Bono Clients 2015. Click HERE to learn more about this event.

Chaired by Alicia Aiken, Executive Director of the Confidentiality Institute, the course will run for five days from October 26-30, 2015. Attendees are expected to participate each day but may attend daily at any time, day or night.

Learning to ask the right questions the right way can get you off to a good start in your attorney-client relationships. This is especially important when working with pro bono clients who have had limited experience with the legal system. The course is open to all, without cost, and blends traditional course materials with videos, discussion forums, and other activities.

You will learn:

  • Preparing for client interviews
  • The art of collecting information
  • Anticipating and preventing client and attorney frustrations beforethey happen
  • Communicating the implications of a third-party presence to your client
  • Controlling the interview when a third party is present

The Art & Science of Interviewing Pro Bono Clients 2015 will be of particular interest to attorneys assisting pro bono clients through representation or in clinical settings, firm pro bono coordinators and partners, corporate law department pro bono managers, law clinic students and faculty, and public interest and non-profit organization attorneys and staff.

Here are some of the enthusiastic reviews from our previous pro bono program using the same online format:

  • "I was absolutely shocked by how much I liked the format. It was great to have the interactive portions, the client/attorney videos, mixed with the lectures. I enjoyed this CLE more than any other I have done.”
  •  "I was surprised at how much I learned over the week. It was also interesting to see what others thought as some people had a different perspective.”
  • "Much of this I can use in everyday practice – not just pro bono clients.”

This course is FREE and OPEN TO EVERYONE!
