CMN228 Media Publishing: Law & Ethics


New information technologies continually spawn legal risks and present ethical challenges to professional communicators. A legal mistake—even if accidental—could cost millions of dollars. This course centres on developing an essential understanding of the laws affecting professional communicators, including defamation, contempt, copyright and privacy. The ethical frameworks that guide best professional practice are also thoroughly explored and tested. An understanding of both the legal and ethical areas equips future professional communicators to work more expertly and confidently.
