High-profile criminal prosecutions present numerous challenges for defence counsel. Not only must they prepare to represent their client in a court of law but they must be prepared to respond to the court of public opinion as well. This panel, composed of experienced practitioners in both criminal and media law, will examine effective tactics for protecting your clients’ interests and rights in high-profile matters.
