Product description

It is aimed at students of law and journalism, practising lawyers and journalists, and other media professionals. To account for the varied audiences the authors have tried to keep the language as accessible as possible to those who are not legally trained, and to avoid legal jargon. Questions of legal procedure and pleading have, for the most part, been avoided but the author has included, mainly in the footnotes, the detail of cases and statutes that a lawyer needs.

This is the first edition written solely by Ursula Cheer without the assistance of John Burrows. In recognition of his contribution to the body of work, the book has been renamed Burrows and Cheer on Media Law in New Zealand.
