Elise Maizel on Reform Corporate Attorney-Client Privilege

Season 1, Ep. 776

In this episode, Elise Bernlohr Maizel, Acting Assistant Professor of Lawyering at NYU Law School, discusses her article "The Case for Downsizing the Corporate Attorney-Client Privilege." Maizel begins by describing the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine. She explains why the attorney-client privilege doctrine has always been a poor fit for corporate clients. And she proposes a new model for the attorney-client privilege in the corporate context that is both more conceptually coherent and practically desirable. Maizel is on Twitter at @eliseconstance.
