Confidentiality 101: It's Much More than Keeping Secrets 2020

Product ID: CA3068R6
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Assume nothing

Protecting client information is the cornerstone of the attorney-client relationship. Yet, there are exceptions to every rule, and SCR 20: 1.6 is no different. You don’t need to have the confidentiality rule memorized, but making assumptions about what information is or isn’t protected could land you in hot water.

Confidentiality 101: It's Much More than Keeping Secrets will clarify what exactly SCR 20:1.6 protects and explain the limited circumstances in which client information can be divulged without violating the duty of confidentiality.
