Samuel Buell on Lawyer-Client Privilege
Samuel W. Buell of Duke Law School provided insight on lawyer-client privilege regarding the FBI raid of President Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, in a recent New York Times article.
In the article, Professor Buell says that the idea of lawyer-client privilege is “that it is generally in the broader public interest to encourage people to consult lawyers and talk candidly with them. That way, lawyers can steer their clients toward lawful conduct in the first place, and better-informed lawyers will make the legal system function more smoothly.”
