Event Description

Online registration is now closed. To register, please email Yajaira Lansiquot at

Register by November 18th

In Energy Policy Advocates v. Ellison (A20-1344, Sept. 28. 2022), the Minnesota Supreme Court held that parties with common legal interests do not waive the attorney-client privilege or attorney work-product doctrines when they communicate with each other. In this one-hour webinar, hear about the decision, its scope and impact, and potential areas of uncertainty from public and private practitioners involved in the case. Topics to be covered include the uncertain lines between protected “legal” interests and unprotected “policy” interests; and when and how inter- and intra-agency communications are protected.
