Confidentiality and Privilege: Not One and the Same

Webinar

The lawyer’s duty of confidentiality and the attorney client privilege share a common basis, and both address information a lawyer must protect.  However, they are not a single concept, and lawyers often confuse the two.  This program will examine how the duty of confidentiality under ABA Model Rule 1.6 and the attorney client privilege intersect and how their scope and applications differ.
