A practical guide for writers and other journalists whose job brings them into contact with the law. Suitable for students and trainees in journalism at all levels, this book provides the background legal knowledge required for the award of an NVQ in both regional newspaper and magazine journalism. New legislation and developments in the latest edition include the wide-ranging reporting restrictions proposed in the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Bill, which affect access to the courts and the reporting of stories concerning children, vulnerable witnesses and victims of sexual offences. The text also covers the impact on media law of the Human Rights Act 1998; the Data Protection Bill which has a much wider application than the Act which it replaces.
