Thx for both of your replies.  At my own school, I got an answer to the effect of "Why are you asking this Depends."

You gave me your own experience and take on it, and that's very much appreciated.

I'm trying to take the "harder" one of these two required courses first.  Between these two, which is easier?

Attorney client privilege doesn't really "apply" to a person, but rather privileges *belong* to certain individuals.

The attorney client privilege *belongs* to the client (who may waive it), and *applies* to confidential statements made to a licensed attorney for the purpose of receiving legal advice.

The duty an attorney is under is a duty of loyalty, which includes maintaining client confidences and not revealing any harmful, embarrassing, etc. information about the client.

Much appreciated.

In legal phrasing, I'm thinking the attorney-client privilege applies to the client, and that a duty of confidentiality then applies to the attorney.

However, can it also be said that the attorney-client privilege applies to the attorney? Or does the attorney only have a duty of confidentiality and not a privilege?

First, what is this for?  If you're doing some sort of over the summer write on, you shouldn't be asking for help.

Second, (and I shouldn't even be telling you this if this is for law review write-on), it's called a signal.  Look it up.

I'm doing this for a resume writing sample, so you can sleep well at night knowing you didn't violate your conscience if you were to provide me the correct answer.

Secondly, I appreciate the pointer in the right direction, but the overall demeanor and presumption of the response can sure leave a sour taste in the reader's mouth.

I am using the ALWD manual for citing, and in one sentence that references two legal cases, I am wondering what goes in between, a semi colon or a comma of some sort?

People with bluebook experience, please feel free to chime in as well for insight.

Also, I am wondering if this practice is generally bad form, but I don't really see a better way to do it when closely comparing the facts of two or more cases in one sentence.
