Privileged communications

Privileged communications – this term refers to communications that due to their origin (i.e. made in a situation and place of privacy) can not be legally used as evidence in a court of law, especially against the parties who have participated in. The confidential communication between lawyer and their client is an example for privileged communication. As well the communication between a phsycho therapist and their patient. When such communication has been mentioned during a trial, it is called “privileged proof”, and it is usually protected by the local legislation not to serve the goals of usual evidences. The goal of the privileged communication is to enable people to speak with professionals and to seek help even if their statement would lead to criminal conviction in other cases.
