Privilege issues permeate every lawyer's practice, whether transactional or litigation-focused. Knowing when privilege does and does not apply, understanding the scope and reach of the privilege, and the circumstances in which waiver applies, and implementing best practices for invoking and preserving the privilege require an awareness of recent cases and how real-world privilege scenarios play out. Lawyers unfamiliar with these evolving principles put their clients and themselves at risk. This program examines key areas in the law of privilege where there have been significant recent developments. Noted author and award winning law Professor Peter Sankoff will address all the main privilege topics, hitting on major developments across this essential area of evidence, including:

  • solicitor-client privilege, including difficult questions relating to waiver and common interest privilege
  • litigation privilege
  • settlement privilege
  • privilege against self-incrimination
  • common law privilege

Live webinar with chat includes 60 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
