When solicitors or barristers are involved in important cases - those which have the potential to change the law and set the bar of justice for others to follow - we work alongside them to help convey the issues at stake to the media and those who will be affected by the outcome.
RTS Media has extensive experience in communicating the implications of decisions made in Employment Tribunals, the High Court, Court of Appeal, Administrative Court and the Supreme Court.
Case study; The Guardian June 17th 2011
In June 2011 our client, Angela Jackman of MG Law, acted on behalf of an African-Caribbean teenager to wear his hair in cornrow braids. Two years earlier, at just 11 years of age he had been refused entry to St Gregory's Catholic Science College on his very first day.
Unsurprisingly this test case decision attracted significant levels of press interest from local and national TV and radio stations alongside the entire fleet of national newspapers. Alongside our client we established clear media objectives, and were able to brief the press on the issues at stake while discussing interview options with the family.
The story generated excellent exposure for our client, as demonstrated by this story which featured on page 3 in The Guardian in addition to several other reports, television and radio interviews.
