Guam - Supreme Court Justice Robert Torres recently returned from being the first distinguished lecturer for the Renalto C. Corona Lecture Series. Philippines Chief Justice Corona invited him to the series where he gave a lecture at the Philippine Supreme Court, which was packed with judges and justices and video-streamed to other islands in the country.

He spoke on the importance to have a productive relationship with the media, saying, "The media is so important in shaping public perception of the courts and for instilling public trust and confidence in the courts, and so the focus of the presentation was on developing those relationships with the media and how we can work with the media."

He says it's important that courts must be able to adapt with the changes in technology. He adds programs like these open doors for future training with the courts in the Philippines at the country's Judicial Academy, as well as for judges and justices to attend training on Guam.
