Course description:
The Public Relations course provides participants with tools they can use to promote community engagement and increase public trust and confidence, while fulfilling their duty to provide administrative and case-related information to the media and the public via electronic, written, and verbal communications. The course teaches court leaders and managers how to craft and deliver messages about court activities and performance, as well as to educate staff about walking the fine line between providing legal advice vs. legal information.
