Legal interviewing for paralegals by William P Statsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the training materials prepared for paralegals, or legal assistants, by the National Paralegal Institute under a Federal grant, the document presents legal interviewing techniques by focusing on an analysis of a particular legal interview conducted by a paralegal on a hypothetical case. From the analysis of the case, a number of problems, principles, and guidelines on interviewing emerge. The guide may be used for self-directed study or as part of a classroom training program. Some principles that are covered relate to: building a relationship of trust with the client, selecting seating arrangements, encouraging the client to express his/her thoughts, taking notes, being alert to potential legal problems, exercising self-restraint in the expression of personal opinions or feelings, sensing the client's readiness for directed questions, interpreting non-verbal forms of communication, adapting the style of questioning to the interview context, reviewing the case in concrete steps, instructing the client in preventive law for the future, using the technique of probing, explaining technical terms, recognizing and understanding the dangers of leading questions, and making the client aware of the options. Additional information on determining eligibility in a legal service office, interviewing and investigation, and role-playing is appended. (Ea)
