Without Prejudice Communications and LPP - Overused and Misunderstood
May CPD Sale 20% Off Price – $116 (RRP $145)
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.
