Online course in media law

This summer, you can earn 3 college credits studying media law -- all while tanning on the beach or lounging in your living room.

I'm teaching an online course on "Free Speech, Media Law & Democracy" through Adelphi University, where I'm a professor. The class features video lectures and class discussions, all of which can be done through your computer. You never need to set foot in an actual classroom.

In the 4-week Media Law class, students learn about the First Amendment, free speech, copyright, libel, protecting confidential sources, getting government records, cyberspace issues and other media law issues from a lawyer and former journalist.
