Without Prejudice Communications and LPP - Overused and Misunderstood
Have you relied on naming a communication ‘Without Prejudice’ and then found out its not? Do you know the essential advice you should give your client to reduce risking LPP? How is social media affecting these fundamental legal concepts?
This seminar will provide guidance on identifying when legal professional privilege applies and how it applies in practice.
This session will cover:
- The scope of legal professional privilege; and
- Applying the dominant purpose test.
- Waiver of privilege; and
- Practical tips for maintaining privilege.
This session will also address what communications are truly Without Prejudice and what are the imposters, and will outline the risks faced in mismanaging these communications.
