Course Description

"The course is designed to give students insight into representing media clients. The course covers representation of newspapers, television and radio stations in and out of court. The topics covered will include defense of libel and invasion of privacy suits, protection of confidential sources, access to courts and judicial records, access to legislative and executive branch proceedings and records, and government regulation, including net neutrality. Because "media" today includes the ever-expanding internet, the course will address how traditional legal concepts have been adapted to fit the reality of today's internet."
