Legal professional privilege guidance - Law Society consultation

26 July 2016

The Law Society of England and Wales has launched a consultation about its new guidance on legal professional privilege (LPP).

The draft practice note, which you can read below, is of particular significance as LPP has faced threats from several directions of late - most recently from proposed changes to the SRA Handbook.

We welcome feedback from the profession on the draft practice note. The consultation ends 9 September.

Please email your thoughts to privilege@lawsociety.org.uk.

Read the draft practice note below.
