i will be providing all the required material.
Question: Compare and contrast TWO case studies in communication (PR, journalism, media production) for what they tell us about the importance of legal considerations to professional practice â€“ i.e. why do your chosen cases teach you something, and what do they teach you?
NB: What you are engaging in with this assignment is Reflective Practice. This means reflecting on actual examples and applying your informed observations to an argument about professional communication.
You can select examples from the unit topics from Contempt of Court through to Copyright, but the idea is not to mention every unit topic for the sake of it, but to select the material that does relate, and drive your analysis.
Advice and Guidance
This will be easier if you a) keep up with the Topic content and readings, and b) start the assignment early, recognising that it does require research of scholarly and media material.
Be careful not to use unacknowledged material from a previous assignment in this unit, or from the internet, as this will be detected (even if words are changed) and/or manual checking of references by marker(s). We are obligated by policy to report any suspected plagiarism and/or collusion.
