President Signs New Attorney-Client Privilege Rule

The President signed into law a new evidence rule (FRE 502) that limits the waiver on attorney-client privilege and work product. It is intended to provide an consistent standard for the privilege for the application of the attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine. For the text of the rule, discussion/analysis and important links such as the "Statement of Congressional Intent", check out the Federal Evidence Review.
