About the event

This seminar is also available as a webinar.

When the journalists rush to you for a comment on your client’s matter you’ll be expected to respond quickly and professionally. This seminar will cover the ethical rules you should keep in mind when assisting your client, journalists and the public interest.

The seminar will also cover:
• Express and implied authority to speak to journalists.
• Client confidentiality.
• The duty to preserve the integrity of judicial processes.
• Practical tips in preparation for questions from journalists.
• A run down on the best and worst behaviour from lawyers and journalists and what to learn from that.
