The Basics of Attorney-Client Privilege and Work Product Doctrine (On-Demand)

$169.00

In American legal jurisprudence, the attorney-client privilege is frequently referred to as “sacrosanct,” with origins pre-dating the Constitution. Although it is commonly understood to be an “absolute privilege,” the privilege does not actually apply to all aspects of the attorney-client relationship. This CLE will begin with a general overview of the basics of the Attorney-Client Privilege & Work Product Doctrine, and then engage a more detailed analysis of emerging issues and technology considerations; key differences between attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine; selected differences between state privilege law and federal privilege law and practical tips for protecting and promoting work product, attorney-client privilege and confidentiality.
