Communication Law Paper- Due Sunday @ 11:59
PAPER 1 ASSIGNMENT SHEET
Paper 1: Defamation and Privacy, Total Points: 100 In the first paper for the class, I want you to analyze one of the cases in the “The Law of Journalism and Mass Communication” textbook relating to either defamation law or right to privacy. You can find the many of the cases from the chapter in the case archive provided on the Sage website.
This archive has also been posted on blackboard for you. Select one of the cases and provide a useful brief of the case and its implications on law moving forward. Your analysis should be 3-4 pages (double-spaced), using college level syntax and grammar, have a works cited list that has at least (3) sources—yes, you can include the textbook as a source. Please include a copy/link of your case with your paper. Here is what you need to include: 1. Give us the legal citation.
These are the answers to the questions. I expect you to identify and refer to the particular passages that establish constitutional precedent. Quote the Justices in your presentation and quote them in your handout. 6. Bottomline: What is/was the rule that this case established. Remember that the Courts say what the Constitution means, so, what does this case mean? What impact did it make? The paper will be due on April 19, 2020, 11:59 p.m.
