The Elements, Scope, Application of the Attorney-Client Privilege

Generally, most courts require that certain elements be demonstrated before finding that the attorney-client privilege applies.  The privilege is designed to foster frank, open, and uninhibited discourse between attorney and client.  The attorney-client privilege may be raised during any type of legal proceeding, including civil, criminal, or administrative.  Furthermore, the attorney-client privilege may be raised at any time during, pre-trial, during trial, or post-trial.
