Notes

For more then two centuries, the attorney-client privilege has been a cornerstone of the US justice system. The privilege, which belongs to the people and not to lawyers, enables clients to communicate with their lawyer in absolute privacy and confidence, and in turn enables the lawyer to know all there is to know in order to protect the rights of the client. The federal government, particularly the US Department of Justice, during the past several years has attempted to curtail the privilege and the role of lawyers. This seminar will examine the privilege, the US Supreme Court decisions that have protected it, the Justice Department’s efforts to erode it, and current efforts to safeguard it
