In this special bulletin, the author examines, in the light of recent UK case law developments, the rules of privilege and confidentiality, and their application to family law proceedings. Topics covered include: rights at common law and under the European Convention on Human Rights; privilege and legal advice; proceeds of Crime Act 2002; confidentiality distinguished from privilege; confidentiality and children proceedings; self-incrimination privilege under Children Act 1989; privacy and the publication of information in respect of proceedings held in private; and ancillary relief proceedings and the duty of full and frank disclosure. Privilege and Confidentiality in Family Proceedings is the only publication to concentrate specifically on such issues as they arise in the context of family law practice. The author's detailed analysis of the key UK legal principles is applied to a range of common scenarios that all family lawyers will recognize.
