Attorney-Client Privilege and the Work Product Doctrine: 2019 Trends and Developments (On-Demand)

3.0 Credit Hours
Description: In this three-hour class, Tom Spahn will help you understand two important legal principles: the attorney-client privilege and the separate but related work product doctrine. The class includes 2019 trends and developments and focuses on these 10 issues:
  • How to determine which attorney-client privilege and work product law will apply
  • Clients' misunderstanding of the privilege's applicability, and the key legal advice component
  • Privilege protection in the corporate setting (including the danger of widespread intra-corporate communications)
  • Sources of proof courts examine in analyzing privilege protection, and practical steps for maximizing the protection
  • Identifying who is outside privilege protection, including clients' and lawyers' agent/consultants
  • Privilege waiver (including implied, "at issue”, and subject matter waivers)
  • Joint defense/common interest agreements (highlighting their unpredictability)
  • Basic work product principles (including the "litigation," "anticipation," and "motivation" elements)
  • Work product waiver
  • Privilege and work product issues arising before, during, and after internal corporate investigations.
This is a replay of the 12/16/2019 course.
