The purpose of this course is to inform students how laws and policies shape media and communication systems, industries and content. They will learn about the specific laws that guide the work of communication practitioners and journalists, including: intellectual property, libel, privacy, obscenity, electronic media regulation, hate speech, and commercial speech. Students will be asked to think, write and speak critically about the political, social and economic forces that shape communication law and the impact those laws have on the cultures in which they operate.
