Media Management Of Legal Issues

Media Management Of Legal Issues

The intense scrutiny of public accusations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination require a proactive response that clarifies the organization’s values. Principles and values shape the conversation. Another component of successfully managing the organization’s relationship with media is highlighting how its vision, mission and values align with the organization’s response to the misconduct. 

LISA TERYL provides Teryl Scott’s legal media management services. As former Senior Legal Counsel for the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, she worked extensively with media shaping the way human rights issues were understood and reported.  She specializes in simplifying complex legal issues for the public. Her book Nova Scotia Law: Everything You Wanted To Know But Couldn’t Afford To Ask (Pottersfield, 2002)––a local best seller––simplified everyday legal issues for non-lawyers. In an article she wrote for the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society magazine The Society Record, “Cultivating Empowered Workplaces,” she articulates  her management philosophy and the importance of articulating institutional values.
