February 20th, 8.00am, Indigo, 27 Maritime Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6SE
We’re delighted to extend an invitation to you to attend our latest Indigo Insights event, where we will take a look into the fascinating world of the media lawyer.
We will be joined by David Mckie, a partner with law firm Levy & McRae and one of Scotland’s leading media lawyers.
David is the legal adviser to Newsquest (Herald and Sunday Herald) advising on pre and post publication and acts for private individuals and corporations on reputation issues and crisis management. He was Head of Media Law at University of Glasgow 2009-2016, is a regular media commentator and has a wide-ranging portfolio of published work including contribution to ‘Scots Law for Journalists’.
The aim of the session is to provide you with greater insight into what to do when faced with a potentially damaging media story and how lawyers work with the PR team. David will offer guidance on pertinent legal matters from defamation and privacy through to copyright matters, while Indigo’s director, Elizabeth Lambley will lead a short discussion on building and protecting reputation.
The event will conclude with a Q&A session and debate on the role of the media and their legal boundaries.
