Description

Media Law is written for anyone whose day-to-day livelihood depends on, or is affected by, the publication, broadcast, or transmission of information and opinion in what is known as the mass media. For the practising lawyer, the book will serve as an indispensable desk reference; for the working journalist, it is a lexicon of conduct. Students of law or journalism will find the book an accessible and authoritative text—one that they will refer to often during their academic careers and throughout their professional lives. The central concept around which the book is organized is freedom of expression. In Media Law, Professor Martin brings together elements from a number of different areas of the law, including criminal law, constitutional law, and the law of torts, in a lively treatment of the legal framework within which journalists work.
