We're pleased to announce that News University launched its Online Media Law course today. The course is specifically designed for individuals and journalists engaged in online publishing, and it covers three important areas of media law -- defamation, privacy, and copyright. The course is free. Students can enroll online at the NewsU site and take the course at their own pace.
CMLP Director David Ardia co-authored the course with Geanne Rosenberg, Chair of the Department of Journalism and the Writing Professions at City University of New York’s Baruch College. The course was created at the behest of the Media Bloggers Association (see MBA's announcement). You can see NewsU's official press release here.
(Note: News University is funded by the Knight Foundation, which also provides funding for the CMLP.)
