Private Privilege

Privilege prevents evidence from being disclosed. In criminal litigation the two types of privilege that may be claimed are legal professional privilege and the privilege against self incrimination.

Legal professional privilege

This protects the communications between lawyer and client in connection with obtaining and giving legal advice as per s 101 PACE. Information protected by this privilege includes letters, memos and communications with counsel. In formation between lawyer, client and a third party are also protected where this is in connection with pending litigation including communication with an expert witness. Although this privilege is strictly enforced it can be waived by the client.
