Law Society 1 - ICAEW 0

By a majority of five to two, the Supreme Court confirmed the current position that Legal Advice Privilege (LAP) is confined to confidential legal advice provided by professional, qualified lawyers.

The Supreme Court accepted the Law Society’s position that LAP should not be extended beyond its current scope at common law, and that any such extension was a matter for Parliament.

Final score Law Society 1 - ICAEW 0
