Spring Hill, Florida (March 21, 2023) – Attorney Brian Brijbag recently had the honor of being selected as a judge for the American Bar Association’s Client Counseling Memorandum Competition. The competition tests law students on their ability to interview, counsel, and support a client. Attorney Brijbag judged students in the following areas:
- Client problem description
- Summary of client’s goals
- Explanation of law
- Analysis and discussion
- Moral and ethical issues
- Next steps identification
- Format and grammar
These categories are many of the areas that contribute to being a successful attorney. In making their selection the American Bar Association informed Attorney Brijbag that his selection was based on his experience and his efficient handling of client inquiries. As the long-term editor of a journal of practice law, Brijbag was well equipped to provide feedback and grading on legal memorandums.
A Client Counseling Memorandum details the pros and cons of a client’s case while providing the relevant legal basis for moving forward. It is a tool that a junior attorney will need to prepare for a senior attorney to review and make a decision.
“This was indeed an honor,” said Brijbag. “In taking part in this competition, I am helping mentor a new generation of lawyers.”
