Attorneys in the News: Understanding and Engaging with the Media

Aug 22nd, 2017
Presentations

Trisha Volpe led a CLE seminar and communication training at the American Bar Association’s Annual Conference held in New York City in Aug. 2017. The session supports attorneys in navigating the complicated and sometimes mysterious world of the news media, positioning them to become solid and reliable contacts journalists turn to for depth and perspective. The program provided practical tools to assist attorneys to communicate effectively and strategically in front of any audience while navigating unique ethical issues lawyers face when engaging with the news media. The CLE is part of a long term project Trisha has helped lead over the last several years sponsored by the Minnesota Women Lawyers organization to help advance women in the practice and to encourage new perspectives in news coverage of legal issues.
