Product description


"Not for nothing is McNae's known among journalists as the Bible for media law. It should be easily to hand on the desk or reference book shelf of every working journalist and editor." Mike Dodd, Media Lawyer, September 2007


McNae's Essential Law for Journalists continues to provide definitive practical guidance on the effects of the law and the Press Complaints Commission Code of Conduct on newsgathering and publication. McNae's is endorsed by the National Council for the Training of Journalists as the essential text for students on journalism courses. It is the indispensable, complete and portable resource in the armoury of the practising journalist or editor; used in newsrooms, court rooms and at public meetings across the country. The authors' non-technical language, engaging writing style and use of topical examples makes the law clear and brings it to life. The nineteenth edition of this acclaimed book has been made even more user-friendly with a two colour text design and the inclusion of summaries and practical checklists to meet the needs of students and busy journalists who need quick answers to the questions they face in their day-to-day work. Online Resource Centre The book is complemented by a web site that provides a test bank of questions, updates, web links, key cases, latest news, and a "Does Your Story Contravene the Official Secrets Act?" table, along with a detailed explanation of the Official Secrets Act of 1911 and 1989.
