House Rules: Congress and the Attorney-Client Privilege - Levin Center Res
This event is in the past.
Join the Levin Center on May 16 for the presentation by our 2022 Research Award winner, Professor Dave Rapallo of Georgetown University, to discuss his award-winning paper “House Rules: Congress and the Attorney-Client Privilege”.
Professor Rapallo’s paper offers a compelling and timely defense of the right of Congress to determine whether, when, and how to recognize the attorney-client privilege and other judicially created common law privileges when seeking information in the course of an oversight investigation. The paper presents persuasive historical and judicial precedents and offers an engaging alternative reading of Supreme Court dicta on this matter in the 2020 Mazars opinion.
