Inforrm recently featured a list of media law academic articles published in the last 6 months.

We’re happy to bend the rules (given that six months is a short time in academic terms) to include them here, and also list some recently published books.

Articles

We draw attention to the following:

The Journal of Media Law (by subscription) has now published its December edition which includes these articles:
