Question and answer
In your opinion, what's the concept of attorney–client confidentiality and its importance to the criminal justice system?
Attorney–client privilege is a legal concept that protects certain communications between a client and his or her attorney and keeps those communications confidential. The attorney–client privilege is one of the oldest recognized privileges for [ confidential communications.[1] The United States Supreme Court has stated that by assuring confidentiality the privilege encourages clients to make "full and frank" disclosures to their attorneys, who are then better able to provide candid advice and effective representation The general rule is that lawyer-client communications are privileged, or
confidential. Lawyers can't reveal a client's oral or written statements to anyone. If this sacred trust of confidentiality were not inviolable, a client wouldn't feel free to disclose to his or her attorney everything the attorney needs to know to represent the client's interests. If this privilege were abolished, great injury would be done to the adversary system of fact-finding because clients would be afraid to confide in their attorneys. ]
