INTRODUCTION

The law governing media and social media encompasses several different areas, from defamation and privacy to criminal and intellectual property laws. The legal principles underpinning the use of various forms of media have practical consequences in many professions, including journalism, blogging, and political communications through to marketing, advertising, and in many other areas of business and civil society. The practical application of the law in these different industries requires balancing rights and interests that will be explored through the delivery of this course, from protecting the rights to privacy and a good name to recognising the importance of ensuring freedom of expression in a democratic society.

The law in this area evolves alongside the developments in technology that occur on an almost daily basis. This Social Media and Media Law course will seek to provide participants with insights in respect of relevant legal principles and provide them with opportunities to hear from leading experts and individuals with vast experience in applying those principles in their engagement with media and social media in practice.
