Fearless Advocacy: The Challenges of Representing an Unpopular Client


 

At some stage in your career, you may be called upon to represent a client with a less than shining public reputation. For some lawyers, this is an everyday reality.

Effectively representing an unpopular client requires being able to ask all the pertinent questions and raising all the issues, no matter how unpalatable. It can also mean facing the glare of the press and the vitriol of social media.

Our presenters are experienced criminal and civil lawyers who regularly find themselves arguing on behalf of people accused of violent crimes, individuals with unpopular positions or corporations viewed as placing profits before social or environmental responsibility.

Whatever your practice area, our speakers will offer practical tips for professional advocacy on behalf of out-of-favour clients.

This webinar will cover topics including:

•    Considerations before taking on an unpopular client
•    Maintaining your reputation while representing disreputable clients
•    Ethical issues around the press and social media
•    Navigating safety concerns
•    Your obligations under codes of professional conduct
