  • The only platform for focused, rigorous analysis of global developments in media law, this new peer-reviewed journal is:

    • essential for teaching and research
    • essential for practice
    • essential for policy-making.

    It turns the spotlight on all those aspects of law which impinge on and shape modern media practices - from regulation and ownership, to libel law and constitutional aspects of broadcasting such as free speech and privacy, obscenity laws, copyright, piracy, and other aspects of IT law. The result is the first journal to take a serious view of law through the lens.
