Mimi Samuel (Seattle University) and Scola Nafuna (Nkumba University) discuss Teaching Students to Draft Letters to Clients. Professor Nafuna discussed the initial client interview (prior to giving oral or written advice) and offered a checklist for that interview. She also cautioned against treating an interview like a cross-examination and suggested understanding the client's point of view and expectations. (She can come and teach my class anytime!!) Professor Samuel talked about the tone conveyed in a letter and goals for a class session.
