Media Law Clinic

Media Law Clinic

In the Media Law Clinic, students undertake practical, in-depth studies of law, policy, regulation, and professional ethics that shape the relationship between the communications media and such institutions as the judiciary, legislature, agencies, business, education, and the professions. Individual students or teams of students, supervised by the clinic director, prepare research reports in response to requests from the likes of:

  • lawyers
  • policymakers
  • publishers
  • others who are concerned with the free flow of accurate, fair, and timely news and information in a democratic society.

The clinic is designed to advance students' skills and knowledge in analyzing the rights and responsibilities of the communications media and the individuals and organizations that depend on those media to inform the citizenry.

The clinic, open to second- and third-year students, is in the spring semester.
