Media Law for Canadian Journalists, 3rd Edition takes an accessible, practical approach to media law. It uses real-world examples to explain how the law works, how it is interpreted, and how it impacts Canadian journalists.

To provide necessary context, author Dean Jobb analyzes the justice system, the role of the Charter, the scope of freedom of expression, the law of defamation, and the impact of “libel chill.” This text also includes practical advice on various legal and ethical issues such as dealing with sources, recording telephone interviews, and respecting copyright and personal privacy.

Additionally, this text provides valuable information on best practices for covering court cases, including how to navigate publication bans, and how to handle restrictions on access to hearings and documents.

  • New trends and issues (i.e. privacy law and digital media considerations)
  • Coverage of Canada’s new Press Shield law, and recent high profile cases including Magder v Ford and R v Ghomeshi
  • New material on legal and ethical issues that arise in reporting for digital news platforms
