Winners of the Russell McVeagh Client Interviewing Competition 2016

1 May 2016

The 2016 Russell McVeagh Client Interviewing Competition Final took place in March.

Students were assessed on their ability to identify their clients problem, their questions, the advice they provide and whether they can extract all the relevant information from their client. They were also assessed on their people skills.

Russell McVeigh solicitors, Joshua Blue and David Alley travelled from Auckland to judge the competition. The Faculty would like to thank Russell McVeagh and WULSA for their ongoing support.

Competition winners Emma Speakman and Talia Powell now have the opportunity to represent the University of Waikato at the New Zealand national client interviewing competition.
