Judge Mukasey Explains the Attorney Client Privilege with Wisdom and Clarity

With all the references to the attorney-client privilege in recent news, I had been meaning to post an article on this important legal protection.

Today’s Wall Street Journal contains an op-ed by former U.S. Attorney General and former federal judge Michael B. Mukasey that surpasses — in practical wisdom and conceptual clarity — any explanation that I’ve received in law school, read in court opinions, or encountered in day-to-day law practice.

The online version requires a subscription — and if one lacks that it’s worth tracking down a hard copy of the newspaper to read this piece.
