I noticed that a lot of American discussions about law include a disclaimer (I am not your lawyer). A recent article mentioned that this is the case because otherwise there may be an attorney-client privilege.
This (EDIT: automatic pairing) does not exist in France (you will not find any disclaimers in discussions and a lawyer is your lawyer when you hire him or her) so I was wondering about the geographical extent of this privilege.
Specifically, could it be in place when:
- two Americans citizens discuss over a non-US portal?
- the discussion is on an American site, between a US citizen and non US one?
- two Americans citizens discuss outside the US?
