In the 24-7 news-cycle world, any case can potentially explode into a high-profile or newsworthy case. When this happens, lawyers face complex problems of protecting their clients while navigating ethics rules pertaining to confidentiality and publicity. Speaker Bruce McMullen, who has a wealth of experience handling high-profile cases, will discuss how a lawyer both complies with ethical responsibilities and manages media relations for public clients -- in light of Freedom of Information Act requests and duties -- private clients in light of reputational and competition concerns. Bruce will also talk about ways to combat damaging and inaccurate publicity.

I learned a lot. Everything I learned confirms my long time advice to clients and their families that getting the media involved is more dangerous than a double edged sword. There are more pitfalls than I previously imagined.
Good explanation of how to consider outside issues in managing a high-profile case.
Amazing Job. I learned a lot about getting information prior to litigation when suing the city.
I have handled several newsworthy cases in my career. I wish I had seen this presentation 15 years ago! Great program.
The open records act info was especially helpful. He was one of the most engaging CLE presenters I've seen; very good presenter.
I had no idea that FOIA requests took up so much of tax dollars.
