This book is excellently written and, what is often more important with books like this, brilliantly and clearly organised.
Considering that most people, bar students, use this look up random small things in the middle of chapters, it needs to have a good index, and it does. It also has a glossary of the most common terms (all of which are highlighted as they come up in the text) with blue page edges so it's easy to find and flick to.
The chapters all have a good brief summary at the beginning, and a run down of the major points again at the end. Chapters reference pages from other chapters where appropriate, and all the page references that I have checked have been correct (a simple thing you'd imagine, but one that isn't always the case in books like this).
There is also a good amaount of online material linked to the book providing extra reading and more real life examples of the laws discussed.
It's a great book, and an essential one, for both students and practising journalists.

This book is the essential for any journalist of aspiring journalist.

The book clearly lays out all the law that is relevant to journalists (such as defamation), but also law around crimes. It can be quite heavy to read but that it because law is a tough subject, each topic is split into subsections and major points are also recapped at the end of each chapter. Useful websites and further reading is also suggested for each subject should anyone wish to study further.

you get what it says on the cover - considering its subject this book is extremely easy to read - great cross-referencing, indexing and glossary - well worth the £17 i paid - taught me a lot

As a student journalist, this is very helpful, although some of it is difficult to read as a novice, the layout of the book with key points at the end of each chapter helps! Good guide to help with journalism law studies

For Journalism students in the UK, this book is full of thorough analyses. Goes well with other similar law textbooks.
