Rule 1.6 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct states: “A lawyer shall not reveal information relating to the representation of a client unless the client gives informed consent, the disclosure is impliedly authorized in order to carry out the representation” or the disclosure is permitted by the rules. This issue of TYL In Focus looks at confidentiality. We tackle the interplay between confidentiality and the attorney-client privilege—few of your duties will seem more straightforward and, upon deeper inspection, be more confusing. We cover how to keep your clients’ confidences outside of the office and what to do if you are faced with a suicidal client. There are strategies for drafting and negotiating non-disclosure agreements and tips for preserving attorney-client privilege in internal communications. We also question how the police use of body cameras in hospitals affects medical privacy. This latest issue of TYL In Focus is another great addition to your digital library.
