Legal Professional Privilege and Three Rivers (No 6): Part 3 - Conclusions

Charles Prest, Barrister, 6 Park Square, Leeds.

This is the third and final article in a series about legal professional privilege (LPP) in the light of the decision of the House of Lords in Three Rivers District Council v Governor and Company of the Bank of England (No 6) [2004] UKHL 48. The first article specifically addressed legal advice privilege (LAP), one of the two subheadings of LPP. The second addressed litigation privilege (LP), the second of those two subheadings. This third article provides a summary of the conclusions reached in the previous articles, some comment about where the law currently stands on the matter and a postscript drawing solicitors' attention to certain changes in their rules of professional conduct.

See November [2006] Fam Law for the full article.
