The importance of the subject of legal professional privilege has been shown by the detailed consideration that the House of Lords has made since 1995 in R v Derby Magistrates Court, ex parte B in which privilege was described as the predominant public interest and the cornerstone of our justice system. The Three Valleys litigation and hundreds of other cases reinforce this importance. But to understand the reach of privilege is no easy task. Indeed, the scope of the two main heads of privilege have only recently been settled by the Courts, notwithstanding that privilege can be traced back many hundreds of years.
This major work - the first wholly devoted to the subject to be published in this country - examines privilege in all its aspects in terms which will appeal to the practitioner and academic alike. The author's explanation of the subject is both detailed and analytical, providing the reader with a definitive, comprehensive and expertly written account.
