It is usually easy to criticize the work of committees, as the results of their work are usually a compromise between many philosophical and practical differences of opinions. The American Bar Committee and the various state bar committees that fashioned the Rules of Professional Conduct dealt with complex ethical issues that are difficult to find practical answers for, under the many different factual situations that can arise, are no exceptions. Therefore, the purpose of this article is not to criticize, but simply to note the questions and confusion that arise in one of the legal profession's most sacred principles: The Lawyer-Client Privilege.
