How does the attorney- client privilege differ from the ethical rules regarding confidentiality?

Apr 14th, 2015

How about we begin by characterizing the distinction in confidentiality and attorney-client privilege. When in doubt, a legal counselor should not uncover any data identifying with the representation of a client. This is the lawyer's obligation to the client, and covers nearly anything the client says or gives the lawyer amid the course of the representation.

Attorney-client privilege emerges to keep a restricting party, court or other legislative tribunal from convincing the disclosure of classified interchanges between a lawyer and a client. This privilege is very specific. It just emerges if the client is really looking for the lawful legal services of the lawyer, the client has passed on classified data to that lawyer and a contradicting party, court or other government tribunal is looking for exposure of that data.

Confidentiality involves not only protecting what the client has directly told the attorney (attorney-client privilege) but also what the attorney has learned from sources other than the client (secrets of the client).
