Osgoode Sim Client Project
We’ve finished our Simulated Client (SC) project at Osgoode Hall Law School, which was around three months in the planning. Further and much more detailed analysis later, but this is a quick post for now to summarise what we did.
Just a few reminders – SCs are people who are trained to do two things well – to represent a client narrative as if it’s being told by a real client, and to assess students’ client-facing skills and attitudes. They do a lot more of course – they help students be aware of client expectations, the role of affect, and the importance of problem-solving, and help develop students’ sense of their own professional identity and voice.
