The Law Society has released new guidance on legal professional privilege, in the form of a practice note. It focuses particularly on lawyers' responsibility when asserting LPP to ensure that it is used appropriately. 

If you're interested to learn more about this key topic, why not attend CLT's 'Legal Privilege: A Guide for Practitioners' half-day course? It will guide you through the scope and limits of both LPP and without prejudice privilege, as they apply to civil litigation. It also explains the protection privilege gives to clients facing regulatory investigation and so will be of particular interest to in-house counsel.
