Register for this course

Presented in collaboration with the Conference of Court Public Information Officers and the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno.

This course is a blend of the former Basic Skills for Disseminating Court Public Information course and the First Amendment and Media Issues for Judges course. Open to both judges and key court administrators, this course teaches participants how to deal with media issues, both positive and negative, and who should take the primary role in given situations to provide a coordinated approach. When media seek access to court information, the first people they will likely contact are not judges, but other court personnel. Ideally, a judge and a selected member of the court’s administration should take this course as a team to prepare them for dealing effectively with the media. Topics covered include free press and fair trial, working with the news media, restrictive orders and other impediments for the court spokesperson, having a Web presence, cameras in the courtroom and the high-profile trial.
