We are COMM 320: Media and the First Amendment, and welcome to our final project! We were tasked with creating a resource for journalists. As students ourselves, we wanted to focus on a resource for specifically student journalists. We've compiled some aspects of media law and student journalism that we consider to be really important, and put them all on this website to help student news publications thrive.
