Welcome to the Health Care Law Section

Attorney Client Privilege in the Wake of Halifax

    Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2014
    Time: Noon
    Cost: FREE

    The Health Care Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan invites you to attend a presentation discussing Attorney Client Privilege in the wake of Halifax. The presenter will be Andrea J. Bernard of Warner Norcross & Judd, a litigator who serves as her own firm’s Associate General Counsel.

    Last year, a federal judge ordered Halifax Hospital Medical Center to turn over legal memoranda discussing physician compensation to the Department of Justice. In this webinar, Ms. Bernard will discuss the rules surrounding attorney-client privilege in Michigan, recent developments in the area of attorney-client privilege—including Halifax—as well as things every lawyer (both in-house and outside counsel) should understand about the attorney-client privilege.

    GoToWebinar will be used in conjunction with our conference dial-in line, so participants will have the option to follow along with the presenter by viewing the program materials online during the presentation.

    Presentation materials will be available for download 48 hours prior to the scheduled teleconference.

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about calling in to the conference line and joining the webinar, as well as instructions on how to download the program materials.

    Questions? Email HCLS Administrator Adrienne Nutter at, or call (313) 566-9221.
