    Is there anything in the Constitution or Bill of Rights concerning lawyer/client confidentiality.


      I'm currently researching whether or not Rule 1.6: Confidentiality of Information in the American Bar Association's Center for Professional Responsibility is protected under the Bill of Rights or Constitution. In the case of a defendant confessing to additional incriminating information is the lawyer protected under the Constitutional rights (5th Amendment) or the Bill of Rights? Or is it protected under the Judicial powers, thus putting it under Constitutional protection.
