Course Introduction

This course gives students the opportunity to gain expertise in a range of legal regimes governing key aspects of the media, from the regulation of all key forms of media content to the regulation of the infrastructures via which that content is delivered, including traditional, new and still'developing media. In an age of seemingly infinite broadcast channels, online information at our fingertips, and the ever'increasing economic and cultural significance of the entertainment industry, media law has never been more relevant to our daily lives than it is today.

Course Modules

Modules include: International and comparative law of copyright and related rights; media law; intellectual property and the creative industries; cyberspace law; privacy and information law; telecommunications law; interactive entertainment law.

Course Additional Entry

Applicants must have a degree in Law, or a degree with a substantial law content, of at least 2.1 honours (or equivalent). Law graduates with 2.2 honours who also have other legal qualifications and/or substantial professional legal experience may also qualify. Non'law graduates: Non'law graduates with a minimum 2nd Class Honours degree, that have also obtained a Merit (or 60 per cent) in the Common Professional Examination (CPE) or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) recognised by the UK professional bodies, may also qualify. Non'law graduates may also be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience (of at least 5 years) in a legal area or an area directly related to their programme of study.
