Professors Jethro Leiberman and Michelle Zierler
If a case catches the media’s attention, how should an attorney handle its communications with the press? How can your client benefit from your communicating with the press? What are the pitfalls you should avoid? What are the torts associated with the press? What legal recourse might you have on behalf of your client if he has been injured by the press? What ethical violations must be avoided when talking to the press about a case? In today’s 24/7 news environment, attorneys must be prepared to speak to the press. This course will discuss the legal and practical implications of doing so.
