This course is concerned with the emerging law of privacy as it relates to the media (traditional mass media and newer electronic technologies of communication), and the intersection between privacy and freedom of speech. The course begins with a consideration of European and UK jurisprudence (shaped by the European Convention on Human Rights) and US jurisprudence (shaped by the First Amendment to the US Constitution). It then focuses on the extent to which this overseas jurisprudence has impacted on the law, and law reform options, in Australia.
