With a 24/7 media cycle, your case may explode overnight into a media frenzy. Small towns in Idaho have had this happen all too frequently in the past few years.  Public interest in true crime, trends, or politics may result in reporters chasing down a story about your case asking you to be ready to speak at a moment’s notice. This presentation will address the specific ethical rules that govern what lawyers can legally and ethically say to the press. Incorporating the IRPC, this program will cover permissible statements both in and out of the courtroom, on and offline, and will touch on how you can respond to unfair adverse publicity.

Speaker: Wendy J. Olson, Stoel Rives, LLP

Note:  This CLE will begin with as the opening session of the Idaho State Bar Annual Meeting with an address by Gary L. Cooper, President of the Idaho State Bar and Chief Justice  G. Richard  Bevan, Idaho Supreme Court.  All of the speakers are included for the full  CLE credit.
