Ruixue Ran will speak on a panel “Globalization of Attorney-Client Privilege – the Asian Perspective.” With the role of lawyers growing in governmental investigations and civil litigation, the value of attorney-client privilege, which was originally created in common law countries, has been well-recognized globally. Asian countries are not an exception. Attorney-client privilege is one of the hottest and most controversial topics in Asia, including in Japan, Korea and beyond. In this session, speakers will discuss the value of the privilege and the challenges in introducing, using and enforcing it in civil law systems.
