Overview

Certain confidential lawyer-client communications are privileged from disclosure. Considering that these rules can differ from state to state, this book examines various states' disclosure laws and legal privilege rules in a comparative manner. It proposes a new rule that courts should use for determining the applicable privilege law during transnational litigation.
