This well respected book has detailed and scholarly coverage of all aspects of the doctrine of legal professional privilege, and is an authoritative and up-to-date legal work in the market devoted entirely to this area of the law.

Legal Professional Privilege in Australia updates and brings together all the important aspects of the doctrine and all substantive decisions thereon, in a readable fashion rather than a bare and dry exposition. It covers the doctrine both at common law and as set out in the Evidence Act 1995, including its qualifications and exceptions thereto, and closely examines the associate and complex doctrine of waiver of the privilege. It also cites numerous cases to provide detailed illustrations of the application of the doctrine.
