Capsule 23 - Legal Advice Privilege
 
25:29
This capsule examines the basic rules relating to legal advice privilege (also known as lawyer-client, solicitor-client privilege). This is part of a project I am running involving the Flipped Classroom and my course on Evidence Law in Canada. Here are a few caveats! Needless to say, this is not legal advice. It is designed to provide introductory explanations of certain topics in the law of evidence. These materials were designed for my students taking part in the Flipped Classroom - as such they are NOT supposed to be comprehensive or exhaustive of the subject. They were made with time constraints in mind. There are errors throughout, and though I feel confident about the product generally, I did not attempt to correct every mistake made. The goal was to put a good product together in a short period of time. Often, in the interests of time, certain points are generalized. This doesn't mean they're "wrong", but nuances are often fleshed out in the course materials or in class. Rather than include caveats with every sentence, I sometimes make broad generalizations even though I'm aware there might be exceptions that can occasionally arise. Again, the goal is to promote a generalized understanding that provides a platform for deeper learning. I will heartily disavow any attempt to rely upon these in conflict with another Professor, judge, lawyer, etc. Thus, anyone who says "yes, but Professor Sankoff said X"... will receive no support from me! Especially where exams are concerned, it is always good practice to follow your Professor's view of the law. If this material helps you, by all means use it, but do so with care. This material has taken considerable time and effort to produce. I ask only two things in return. First, if you like these capsules - pass them on. The primary objective here is to share a deeper understanding for the subject area I love most. Second, if any of this was in any way useful, I urge you to let me know. A short note at [email protected] would really make my day!

The Civ-Pros - Work Product
 
05:34
Lyrics: (Saba) There are a few limits to discovery, One is work product, found in 26(b)(3) To determine if work product, you must ask The question Professor C taught us in class: Were the tangible things created in anticipation, Of some sort of upcoming litigation? If opinions, impressions, and conclusions you can deduct The more likely its privileged work product When submitting discovery evidence, remember to Redact Striking out work product in one swift act Work product is a qualified immunity Forming a defensive shield against discovery However, this shield can be overcome If your opponent just demonstrates some: Undue hardship and substantial need Then you must submit it, against your greed If the lawyer creates work product and is a good sport His written opinions can't be introduced in court Or otherwise revealed to the other side So he can tell his opponent: "turn around, take a ride" Often is the issue of whether the FRCP Requires the consulted attorney To provide statements compiled in lawsuit preparation To the court and the opponent who be hatin' One case exemplifying where this issue has arisen Is the monumental case: Taylor v. Hickman (Addison) Now let's go back, back to 1943, When the J.M. Taylor sank, and made big history. Five died in the wreck, with Hickman being one, Four of the suits settled, but not all was done. Now there was a public hearing, available to everyone, But Hickman wanted to discover everything under the Sun. Hickman wanted the notes from the owners of the Taylor, When he was refused, he became a work-product hater. The lawyer Fortenbaugh, now anticipatin' litigation, Interviewed some people, and got all related information. Now Taylor's attorney was Mr. Fortenbaugh, And they wanted this information kept from Hickman and all. Since the interviews were not exactly with Fortenbaugh's clients, With no attorney-client privy, he could not be defiant. But the issue still remained from the interview sessions: What about Mr. Fortenbaugh's mental impressions? The Court saw them as a sort of sacred ground, And found Hickman's argument to view them unsound. So Hickman could not view Fortenbaugh's good wits, Because he did not show lots of unfair prejudice. The Court decided to create a qualified immunity, Which was then codified into Rule 26(b)(3). While we want to protect lawyers' thoughts and strategies, You can discover work product with undue hardship and substantial needs. Now we have established some work product facts, Let's get some clarification on some other knick-knacks. (Alex) Now to fully understand work product and other close connections, There a few things you should know, to keep your files protected, Since attorney client privilege applies to legal advice, b/w an attorney and client, an issue will arise, When your client is a corporation, who is the client in fact? Before Upjohn, it was only the high level execs, But no need to worry, when advising lower level workers of essentials, As Upjohn extended the privilege to them, as long as they keep it confidential. Now to make work product more clear to you and me, You need to know if the work product is an opinion, or just ordinary, An opinion goes to the heart of a lawyer's strategy and technique, While ordinary work product is nothing unique, The more opinion it is, the harder for the other party to get, Where ordinary requires a lower proof of substantial need and hardship. 26b5 says you must record the nature of your documents in a privilege log, So you can tell the other attorney to keep their filthy hands off, And this should be taken seriously, as the court in Breon made it an important factor, Where one party provided only an outline, and had to provide all that was asked for . One last thing to note, if you're ever unsure Facts are always, dis-co-ver-able, And if you ever forget anything about work product, As Professor C made it clear, just look in the rule book!

Barbarians at the Gate: Franchisors and the Attorney-Client Privilege
 
58:55
In-house counsel for franchisor companies have many duties, one of which is to protect privileged information from those whom might seek to do the organization harm. That being said, representing a vibrant franchisor places in-house counsel in many unique and challenging positions, including interactions and communications with franchisees, vendors, insurance companies, brokers, corporate affiliates and parents, private equity firms, outside counsel, experts, investigative agencies, regulators, and the list goes on and on. Maintaining the confidentiality of these communications, to the greatest extent possible, involves a working understanding of the limits of the attorney-client privilege, the work-product doctrine, and the common interest privilege. Join Gray Plant Mooty franchise litigators Kirk Reilly and Justin Sallis for a 60-minute webcast on Thursday, October 5, discussing pragmatic and useful examples, tips, and best practices to assist in-house counsel for franchisors to navigate these often “gray areas” of the art of keeping communications confidential and privileged. Issues to be discussed during the webcast will include: •A brief refresher on exactly what the attorney-client privilege, the work-product doctrine, and the common interest privilege protect, and what they don’t protect •Examples of real world franchisor business/legal situations where the attorney-client privilege is at risk, and best practices for protecting the privilege under these scenarios •In-house counsel as business advisor and legal counsel •How to best train key constituents to understand these privileges, and how to protect them •Best practices in dealing/communicating with other employees of the franchisor company, franchisees, corporate affiliates and parents, private equity groups, outside counsel, and others •Navigating the litigation process/discovery

Protected thoughts? IRS threatens attorney work-product doctrine

Oct. 11, 2011 - The Internal Revenue Service has achieved some success persuading courts to limit the application of the attorney work-product doctrine, forcing disclosure of work product -- including an attorney's mental impressions -- in certain situations. If the IRS continues to make in-roads, other government agencies, or even private parties, may follow. That should concern all litigators, says Whitefish Bay lawyer Jay Miller.
