While legal systems differ from country to country, this course considers the laws that affect journalists and the media. It provides a legal and ethical framework for professional practice.
Students will examine the Australian legal system, defamation law, contempt of court and parliament, and the law of copyright. The study of major developments in moral philosophy will form a foundation on which to analyse specific case studies, with particular reference to the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance
(MEAA) (Journalists) Code of Ethics.
