It is time you learned from the experts.

The limits on the news media in gathering the news are splashed across the headlines. The use of hidden cameras, unauthorized taping, access to governmental proceedings and records, and subpoenas to reporters for their sources are the real business of those practicing in the area. There is no better time than now to negotiate newsgathering issues with the experts. In Newsgathering and the Law, Fifth Edition, Lee Levine, Seth D. Berlin, Jay Ward Brown, Gayle C. Sproul and David A. Schulz, each with more than 25 years’ experience in First Amendment and media law, share their combined life’s work with you.

The Fifth Edition includes new chapters on Military Proceedings/National Security and Access to Jury Information, as well as newly-added discussions of a host of other legal developments since the Fourth Edition was published. These hundreds of pages of additional analysis make the new edition a must read for scholars and practitioners alike.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
