Online summer college 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 and Democracy" through Adelphi University, where I'm a professor. The 3-credit classes feature video lectures, interactive exercises and class discussions, all of which can be done through your computer. You never need to set foot in an actual classroom.

In the 5-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.
