Recent Developments for In-House Counsel: Attorney-Client Privilege, AI, and Disciplinary Challenges (A Case Study) 

2023 added a heaping serving of potential concerns to an already overflowing in-house counsel’s plate. Will SCOTUS’ ruling on affirmative action bring about a surge in reverse discrimination claims? Will the company’s DEI policies attract litigation? What is the fine line between business and legal advice, and when is communication protected by attorney-client privilege? We’ll review the issues highlighted in SCOTUS’ January (non) ruling on In re: Grand Jury, take a deeper dive into how attorney-client privilege plays into workplace investigation, and round up the legal risks of ChatGPT and AI in the workplace. We will also review a Kansas disciplinary case to shed light on the disciplinary process, including key differences between Kansas and Missouri procedures, and offer general strategies for responding to disciplinary complaints.
