We have been providing training services in the university sector for more than ten years. This has involved working with students’ unions and their media societies as well as university comms teams and staff.
Law for Student Media – The course covers the range of subjects and issues that can arise for student publications and broadcasters. The session covers the law for print, online and broadcast content and uses many examples drawn from student media cases.
Media Law for University Comms and Staff – The University, as a publisher, needs to be aware of the legal risks involved. This can involve the output from its comms team on conventional channels, as well as student media. It can also involve any publication by academic staff. There has been a rise in legal threat aimed at academic staff in recent years and knowing about the legal protections they have for publication is vital.
Retained advisory services – We also provide retained advisory services for universities and students’ unions so they can send any problematic content to us for advice before publication or broadcast.
