Memo: Comprehensive Reform Still Needed to Protect Attorney-Client Privilege and Employee Rights

By the Coalition to Preserve the Attorney-Client Privilege: While the new Justice Department policy is a welcome and important improvement over its previous policy outlined in the McNulty Memorandum, a comprehensive solution to the ever-widening problem of government-coerced waiver is still critically needed. Therefore, the Coalition strongly supports the adoption of a Presidential Executive Order to all federal agencies requiring them to adopt effective DOJ-type reforms or the enactment of comprehensive federal legislation like the Attorney-Client Privilege Protection Act (ACPPA).
