""Trial by media"" is now a common allegation and increasingly lawyers are expected to advocate their clients' cases in the court of public opinion as well as in the traditional courtroom. Written especially for lawyers, this text aims to answer the growing need to understand: how the media operates, how a client's case should be presented, the ethical dilemmas involved and how to avoid the inevitable pitfalls.

With this guidance lawyers should be able to make the media work for them - whether it's to help their clients or get their firm talked about or both.

The 2nd edition of this guide has been fully revised, incorporating practical new case studies, chapters on litigation support and crisis and issues management, and updated regulations in the appendix.
