Daniel Kenealy, Stuart MacLennan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract / Description of output

Considers whether, in terms of legal professional privilege, the Attorney General's role is equivalent to that of other lawyers when dealing with clients. Looks at how legal privilege operates both at law and in practice. Suggests that Parliament's power to compel the disclosure of legal advice given by the Attorney General to the Government is a political, rather than a legal, issue.
