Privilege and Work Product Protection: Educating Management and Employees

July 22, 2015

Complimentary Webinar

CLE is available in multiple states.

While simple in the abstract, attorney client privilege issues can get complicated very quickly in the real world. Join Practical Law for a webinar discussing how to provide practical guidance to management on the maintenance of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection.

During this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn training techniques to effectively explain the attorney-client privilege and work product protection to non-lawyers.
  • Obtain practical guidance on creating a corporate atmosphere conducive to maintaining the privilege.
  • Discover special considerations when addressing the Board of Directors.
  • Explore real-life examples where attorney-client privilege was waived, the effect this had on the situation and how waiver could have been prevented.
  • Have a basis for creating realistic restrictions on employee social media usage to avoid waiver of privilege.

A short Q&A session will follow.
