Legal professional privilege is fundamentally important to both providers and users of legal services, yet it remains a technical and often overlooked area of law. This book's comprehensive treatment of the subject makes it a valuable resource for all practicing lawyers, in-house counsel, courts, and arbitrators, both in Singapore and other common law jurisdictions.

The second edition has been revised and updated to reflect the 2020 Revised Edition of Acts, the new Rules of Court 2021, and the Singapore International Commercial Court Rules 2021, along with several important local and international judgments issued since the first edition.
