DISCUSSION BOARD POST. RESPOND TO BOTH QUESTIONS

You are asked to interview a potential client. What are the fundamental types of questions that you would ask? Would the type of questions you ask change if you were interviewing a potential witness in a case? Give an example of the type of questions you would ask in each situation and explain how you would disclose your role in the questioning.
Pick one of the legal “privileges” described in the materials and lecture. Explain when it applies and when it is lost. Also, why do you think it is important for the law to recognize such a privilege; what purpose does it serve in the delivery of legal services or “justice”?
