This seminar will examine the new federal rule of evidence, how the courts are interpreting the rule, the implications for litigation practice, and the best methods for protecting attorney-client privilege.
- Rule 502 and its application
- Protection for inadvertent disclosure

The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What are the new protections provided by Rule 502 — and how can counsel best take advantage?
- How will the new rule impact ongoing and future litigation, including complex cases in federal and state courts with the same sources of discovery?
- What practical strategies can counsel employ to reduce the cost and burden of privilege review while maintaining the attorney-client and work product privileges?
- What are the best practices for counsel to go beyond Rule 502 to reach agreements anticipating intentional waivers and inadvertent disclosures and to obtain a court order for such agreements?
