Lawyers sometimes comment on pending cases or attempt to seek an advantage by using media attention to support their case. In other instances, lawyers may believe that media attention is putting their client or their case in a bad light, deserving a public response. This panel explores the lawyer’s use of media—both traditional and social—to advocate a client’s position, or to protect their client’s reputation or other legal interests. The panel also discusses ethical and legal restrictions on lawyer speech during criminal investigations or trial.
