Bench/Bar/Media forum: What to do when national news converges on our town

Save the date: Wed., June 12

When tragedy strikes, our nation watches. From Columbine to Newtown, our nation and national media is focused on high profile, mental health cases that capture the attention of the public. What will happen when San Diego is again in the national spotlight with one of these cases?

Drawing on a fictitious scenario involving mental health and gun violence in a school, an expert panel of reporters, judges and lawyers will highlight what considerations impact how they handle the case. Get first-hand viewpoints and learn what you need to know.
