Short summary
This work discusses the legal consequences of risk and crisis communication. It focuses on three critical issues: the development of effective communication protocols; the role, tasks and responsibilities of science advisors; and the collateral effects of practitioners’ defensive behaviours. The conclusion presents some ideas for future research on the legal aspects of risk communication.
