    When "No Comment" Won't Do: Courts Communicating Through the Media

    1 PM EST

    Relationships between the courts and the media can sometimes confuse even the most sophisticated public. What you see and hear on social media is not necessarily how "things went down" in the case or its proceedings. This program will help judges, lawyers, and journalists be more proactive in their interactions with the media to ensure that the correct information is being relayed.

    As mentioned above, the court system can seem confusing or complicated even to the most sophisticated audience. Journalists and commentators try to explain court proceedings but these are usually in the context of a particular case and cannot give the full picture of what occurs at the local courthouse.

    In this program, panelists will explore the relationship and tensions between courts, journalists, and social media in conveying the purpose and role of the courts and specifics of trial information to the public. Moderated by Andre Davis, City Solicitor for the City of Baltimore, this panel will help judges, lawyers, and court personnel strategize on responses to criticism from public officials. Ben Holden, Teaching Associate Professor, University of Illinois College of Media, and Dahlia Lithwick, Senior Editor, Slate Magazine, will provide viewpoints from the journalist side. They will offer suggestions for being more proactive in your interactions with the media and in providing information about day-to-day court operations and specific trials in an efficient, ethical manner--while still giving the media a story that is attention-grabbing and accurate.
