Trainer – David Banks

This one-day workshop is a masterclass in media law, tailored to those who work in broadcast or make audio/ video content, covering the following topics:

  • Libel
  • Slander
  • Malicious Falsehood
  • Privacy and confidentiality
  • Data Protection
  • Copyright
  • Social media
  • Contempt of Court
  • Restrictions on reporting, eg courts, children and young people, inquests, sexual offences etc
  • Codes of ethics for print and broadcast journalists

After an intensive workshop covering the basics of media law, you will work individually and in groups to tackle a series of scenarios of increasing complexity, featuring various aspects of law and ethics to put your new knowledge to the test.

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 from the morning session 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.

Who is it for?

The workshop is suitable for all abilities, from those with no knowledge of media law, through to experienced journalists and comms professionals in need of a refresher. It will be tailored to those working in the broadcast sector, including radio and television, but will also give invaluable insights to those in comms or PR roles who often work with video or audio online or on social media.
