Abstract: 

On January 18, 2022, the International Bar Association (IBA) released a statement defending the principle of lawyer client confidentiality from “international attack”.  In its 30 page statement, the IBA classifies the principle of lawyer-client confidentiality as a fundamental tenet of the rule of law and cautions that this principle is under attack by bodies that investigate international corruption.
