Day 2

This is a workshop day building on Day 1 and will split into two. Broadcast in the morning and print and online in the afternoon.

Candidates will work individually and in groups to tackle a series of scenarios of increasing complexity, featuring various aspects of law and ethics.

At the end of each scenario there will be a group discussion to debrief and explore the legal issues in detail.

The aim of the day is to enable those attending to put the lessons learned on day one into practice in ‘real life’ situations, enhancing their decision-making skills in a complex and fast-moving media environment.

The sessions run from 9.30-12.30pm and 1.30-4.30pm.
