Handy Hints For Legal Reporting

May 13, 2011

Earlier this month, the Law Society of BC released Handy Hints for Legal Reporting, a guide for journalists covering legal stories.

The guide provides information on:

  • Court accreditation
  • Publication bans
  • Audio recording and televising court proceedings
  • Getting information on court cases and involved parties
  • Levels of court within the BC system

On a related note, the Law Society and the Jack Webster Foundation jointly hold a free, annual Media and the Law workshop , designed to “help journalists boost or refresh their knowledge of law, as it relates to journalism.”

For more information, see the Law Society’s press release.
