Law of the Student Press

Student journalists aren’t simply “trainees” – each day, tens of thousands of them deliver news and commentary on which their entire communities (students and non-students alike) rely to stay fully informed. Law of the Student Press is an essential reference tool for any classroom, newsroom or studio where journalists are being trained. In layman’s language, it explains how to use the law to safely gather and share information, how to defend against threats to press freedom, and how to stay on the right side of copyright, libel and privacy law. This book represents 40-plus years of research and hands-on experience by the attorney staff of the Student Press Law Center, the leading provider of legal training and research in support of student journalists everywhere
