Description:

The event is co-sponsored by Hodgson Russ LLP.

Whether it’s knowing when to pick up the phone and call a press conference, or repeat “No Comment” into the microphone, attorneys need to know how to deal with the media.

It’s about fine timing, clever quotes and premeditated PR. It’s about making the news when you want to, and still looking good even when you don’t. The public is watching, and every one of them is a potential client.

From learning how to draft press releases to generating useable quotes, while also taking ethical rules into consideration, attorneys will be treated to an insider’s look into the ever-changing world of today’s media.
