This chapter first explains how to deal with problem-solving questions, as traditionally set for students on undergraduate law programmes. This includes consideration of the IRAC model. It then explores some of the practicalities faced by lawyers when problem-solving in practice, such as: clients providing insufficient or too much information, taking account of clients’ personal and commercial objectives, and considering other stakeholders’ interests. Next, the chapter considers in more detail the conclusion of problem-solving in practice: advice to the client.
