Attorney Client Privilege
The attorney-client privilege protects confidential communications made for the purpose of obtaining legal advice. The Office of the General Counsel (OGC) represents BYU and not the individuals associated with the university. Even so, the attorney–client privilege may apply to certain communications you have with university counsel. To prevent waiver of the privilege, refrain from discussing or sharing with third parties the content of your communications with university counsel. If you have a question regarding the confidentiality of your communications, please contact the OGC. If your interests become adverse to BYU, you may choose to hire independent counsel at your own cost.
