Communications Law at – a message from UTS
Acquire a Critical Media and Legal Specialisation
Industry and consumer groups require individuals who can prove their expertise in this constantly changing area; individuals ready to emerge as thought leaders in communications, media and intellectual property issues. This specialist program at UTS offers an opportunity for non-law as well as law graduates to develop an understanding and demonstrate their expertise as media professionals and commentators, policy makers and lawyers, managers and researchers in this important area.
Students are exposed to key legal and policy issues within the field such as: broadcast and telecommunications regulation; media law; cybersecurity; privacy; legal perspectives on the internet; the role of law and regulation in communications, media and entertainment; and the relationship of intellectual property and technology. All subjects within the program are taught in intensive mode or as evening classes to minimise the impact on your professional life.
Influential industry experts teach in the program including Professor Michael Fraser, Director of the UTS Communications Law Centre and Dr Murray Green, former Director of ABC International. The UTS Faculty of Law’s research into IP, Media and Communications was ranked at ‘Above World Standard’ by the Federal Government Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) in December 2012 which will help support your learning.
