Media law is made easier with latest eBook from Walsworth Yearbooks

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Copyright, libel, privacy… these are complicated legal and ethical issues that many yearbook staffs ponder every year and often don’t ever fully grasp the way they should.

Thanks to Walsworth’s newest eBook, Media Law and Ethics for Yearbook Journalists, that no longer has to be the case.

Media Law and Ethics provides a condensed overview of all the most important legal topics that are crucial for all yearbook staffs to understand. Starting with a definition of the First Amendment and a review of the landmark Supreme Court cases that defined students’ right to free speech, the eBook also includes sections covering complex subjects such as fair use and parody.

Also, learn guidelines for creating a staff policy manual that will outline for your students how they should handle various legal responsibilities they might face.
