Good Luck

Good luck

I hope that you will be interested and motivated by the study of media law. It is a subject that invariably contains much that is current and to which you can relate. Members of the general public seem to be avid readers of both newspapers and magazines. It is claimed there are some 20,000 magazine titles in the UK alone! Everything about the law that applies to newspapers also applies to magazines.

If you take on board the points that I have raised in this part of the book, you can look forward to achieving high grades in your assessment. It is now down to you to prove to yourself and others that you can grasp the nettle and succeed.
