SYE 4010 - Media and the Law

Hours: 4
This course is designed to introduce graduating seniors to media and the law, in both their advocacy and adversarial relationships. Students will learn the basics of news reporting and media coverage of events, as well as a cursory knowledge of our judicial system. Conflicts between freedom of the press (First Amendment) and the right to a fair trial (Sixth Amendment) are a major component of this discussion.
