Illinois Supreme Court Rule 1.6(d) mandates confidentiality for all information received by LAP volunteers and trained interveners during interventions and related meetings. Both the volunteer and client are assured that anything disclosed is specifically protected by the attorney client privilege. The only exception relates to a client signing a release of information asking LAP to report on his or her behalf to another organization or individual. Additionally, the Interveners and Reporter Immunity Law guarantees immunity for LAP Volunteers and those who participate in its work.
