    Confidentiality and Disclosures to Prevent Death or Serious Bodily Harm

    Confidentiality and Disclosures to Prevent Death or Serious Bodily Harm

    Beginning early in law school, lawyers are told repeatedly that confidentiality with clients is of the utmost importance and should always be respected—except, when it should not be.  There are, of course, exceptions to every rule, including the ethical rule of attorney-client confidentiality.  Some exceptions are very practical, like an exception to check for conflicts or to defend yourself if a client sues for malpractice.  But other exceptions are harder to implement and require difficult judgment calls.  This tool will help lawyers working with victims of domestic and sexual violence to think through best practices for breaching confidentiality to prevent reasonably certain death or substantial bodily harm.
