Media, Law, and Technology Certificate

The Media, Law and Technology Certificate focuses on legislative challenges, judicial decision-making and administrative policy in an era increasingly shaped by information technology, global networks and the media.

The certificate program gives students an opportunity to advance their knowledge and skill in the diverse legal subjects that are of concern in media law practice. Through the certificate program, students also have an opportunity to study how both traditional and new media affect the relationship between law and society.

In news, advertising, film, literature and other forms of expression, the media have illuminated or scrutinized the work of lawyers, judges and legislators. By completing certificate requirements, students gain insight into media effects on legal practice, the judicial process, legislation, public policy, governmental affairs, and business and commerce.

The Media, Law, and Technology Certificate is available to concurrently enrolled KU Law J.D. students
