Legal Ethics/Substance Abuse
Attorney-Client Privilege 3.25 Arizona Ethics Credits

Inadvertent waiver of the attorney-client privilege can have disastrous consequences for both the client and the attorney. In this important September 30, 2015, 3.3-hour program, Michael J. Hutter, Esquire, an expert on this topic, explains the privilege, its elements, exceptions to the privilege and, perhaps most significantly, waiving the privilege. Every lawyer working directly with clients should hear this presentation. It might well help prevent an unintentional waiver.

Mr. Hutter is Professor of Law at Albany Law School where he received the 2015 Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is also Special Counsel to the Albany, New York law firm of Powers & Santola, LLP.
