Media response team planned

Issue August 2004

In a new effort to correct inaccurate impressions and reporting in the news media about the law, the justice system and the role of lawyers, the MBA this fall will embark on an plan to monitor the major media across the state and delivery timely and informed responses.

Incoming President Kathleen O'Donnell will be seeking the participation of MBA House of Delegates members, county bar association representatives and other members to join in this grassroots effort to report instances of faulty local media coverage to the MBA Communications Department, which will work with her to craft appropriate responses.
