Coming Soon:  TYLA Guides on Privilege Law
By: Nicole Soussan Caplan

The laws protecting privileged conversations are as important to the actual practice of law as they are to our clients’ ability to seek professional, spiritual, and legal assistance.  But, particularly for non-attorneys, their protections are often riddled with ambiguity.  Aimed at both attorneys and their clients, TYLA will soon release guides addressing various privilege issues to serve as resources for attorneys in their own practices, but also to aid attorneys in answering their clients’ questions.  The guides, authored by TYLA directors, address the following topics:

          Attorney/Client Privilege
          Attorney Work Product
          Spousal Privilege
          Doctor/Patient Confidentiality & Privilege
          Mental Health Provider/Patient Confidentiality & Privilege
          Spiritual Leader/Practitioner Confidentiality & Privilege

The guides are intended to be handouts for clients and are written to address clients’ questions.  Additionally, both the Attorney/Client Privilege and Attorney Work Product guides contain a second component, specifically for attorneys.
