Delhi High Court directs Bar Council of India to consider a representation for enhancing protection of attorney-client privilege during video conferencing

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed before the High Court of Delhi seeking for constitution of an Expert Committee for looking into strengthening protection of attorney-client privilege during meetings over video conferencing. The reliefs included introduction of appropriate rules/amendments in this regard and certification of specific third-party applications/technology which are safe for conducting privileged communication. The Court remarked that the Petitioner had approached the Court without a representation to the Respondents (including the Bar Council of India). The Court, accordingly, accordingly directed the Bar Council of India to consider the PIL as a representation and decide the same.
