Confidentiality, Privilege and Disclosure in Investigative
and Disciplinary Proceedings for Self-Regulated Professions
Public Sector Lawyers | Original Program Date: November 16, 2015

Through investigative and disciplinary processes, regulatory bodies receive a great deal of highly sensitive information belonging to complainants, members of the public, witnesses and regulated professionals themselves. In pursuing their duty to protect the public interest, how do regulators balance privacy, confidentiality and privilege concerns against transparency and appropriate disclosure? Join our panel of experts to explore the challenges, including:

  • Common law and statutory obligations regulators must heed
  • Sharing information between divisions within the regulator
  • Navigating disclosure to police: proactively or in response to requests
  • How to handle requests for disclosure in civil proceedings
  • What steps could regulators be taking to better achieve a balance?
