Communication and the Law is designed for students planning careers in mass communication. Avoiding legalese, it is written in clear language and terminology understandable to both students and communication professionals alike.  All chapters are written by some of the field’s leading authorities, assuring unmatched expertise, and are updated annually to assure the most current explanation of the law.

A distinguishing feature of Communica­tion and the Law is that a new, updated edition is published each year. Thus, you can be as­sured that you will have the most timely in­formation in one place, rather than in a textbook and a separately published supplement.
