Attorney-Client Privilege After Client's Death - California Law Revision Commission Final Recommendation

In 2007, the California Legislature enacted AB 403 (Tran), extending the attorney-client privilege after the client's death in specified probate cases, and further directing the California Law Revision Commission (CLRC) to study whether and in what circumstances the privilege should survive the death of a client in non-probate cases. The CLRC decided that survival of the privilege should be limited to probate matters, but recommended several changes in the law, which are currently under consideration by the Legislature in AB 1163 (Tran). Since the bill has been substantially amended since originally proposed, a link is provided: http://leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/postquery?bill_number=ab_1163&sess=CUR&house=B
