Abstract

Two law students from The University of Notre Dame Australia, Fremantle, beat students from 25 other Australian universities to win the Australian Law Student’s Association (ALSA) Client Interview Competition.

ALSA is an organisation that facilitates communication between the student societies of each Australian Law School and represents them in government and public arenas.

The students, Adele Nardizzi and Nick Wilson, were at the 29th annual ALSA conference in Canberra where law students from across Australia were invited to attend a week of seminars, talks and competitions.

The pair took part in the Client Interview Competition, designed to examine students’ skills in dealing with their clients. Undefeated through each round they reached the grand final, held in the Australian Federal Court, in high spirits to triumph over The University of New South Wales.

Competition winner, Ms Nardizzi, said she is thrilled about the win and feels privileged to be a part of such an incredible experience.

“I’m grateful to the Notre Dame Law Students Society, its sponsors, and the Notre Dame Law School for the opportunity to participate in such a widely renowned event. I think this win will greatly contribute to our future careers. Effectively interviewing a client is a skill that is essential to being a successful lawyer,” said Ms Nardizzi.
