What is a Live Webcast?
  • Just like attending a live seminar in person, you attend a webcast at a scheduled time, only you do it from your computer.
  • A webcast includes real-time video and audio of the speakers, slides, and downloadable written course materials (if applicable), plus real-time Q&A with the presenters, facilitated by a moderator.
  • Immediately after you register online for this webcast, you will receive an email confirmation that contains the webcast instructions.
  • Still have questions about WSBA-CLE’s webcast? Email them here.

The seminar will present best practices of effective crisis communications. The reputation of the client, for good or ill, will be greatly impacted by the response to a high-profile crisis. Participants will see examples of organizations that have responded well and have responded poorly.


The seminar will assist legal professionals in guiding their companies/clients as they respond quickly, accurately and honestly to emerging crises.


The seminar will include interactive scenarios based on real problems that can lead an individual or organization in the public spotlight. There is often a tension between the best communications practice of engaging with the media and the public and the lawyer's response; the less said the better. Participants will be challenged to share the client advice they would give in response to the scenario in light of the organization's reputational interest.
