Program Agenda

How can something be confidential but not protected by Solicitor-Client Privilege?  When can a lawyer set aside the ethical duty of confidentiality and solicitor-client privilege to reveal information?  Professor Adam Dodek of the University of Ottawa and the author of the new book Solicitor-Client Privilege (Lexis Nexis, 2014) will discuss the differences between the ethical duty of confidentiality and solicitor-client privilege and some of the exceptions.  Heather Williams of Cavanagh LLP will discuss when a lawyer can reveal confidential information to defend themselves or their colleagues against accusations of malpractice or misconduct or to collect their fees.  Margaret Ross of Gowlings LLP will discuss the controversial public safety exception.  The event will be chaired by the Honourable Justice Rosalie Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada and will be followed by a reception for the launch of Solicitor-Client Privilege.
