Standardised Clients

by Paul Maharg on 20/10/2006

Karen and I are in Los Angeles this weekend, at a conference in UCLA to talk about the Standardised Client Project.  This is an international initiative to develop the use of lay people in the teaching and assessment of legal interviewing skills.  It’s a method that derives from medical education — see this article in particular for a useful historical summary of the technique in that discipline.  Can it be used in Law?  We think so, and we’ll be saying why in our presentations.  We’ll be posting in the next couple of days, including the feedback on our paper (soon to be published in the Clinical Law Review) on our research in the GGSL, a draft of which can be seen under Publications to the left.
