When, and how, might client legal privilege be inadvertently waived? What does labelling a communication ‘without prejudice’ achieve?  Is a communication automatically privileged if labelled ‘without prejudice’? Is every word uttered in a mediation taken to be without prejudice?

This session will cover:

  • Client legal privilege and practical tips to assist your clients in maintaining the privilege.
  • Without prejudice privilege and confidentiality:
    • What these terms mean in the context of communications between practitioners;
    • How they operate in the context of mediations; and
    • When privilege will be lost  such that confidential documents and communications may be admissible.
