The Gazette of Law & Journalism has been covering court cases, legislation and policy issues that affect the media since 1986. Our comprehensive database includes articles, interviews and discussion papers on defamation, contempt, suppression, protection of sources, freedom of information, intellectual property, privacy and media law news – as well as live trial reports and an up-to-date national damages table. An indispensable resource for students, journalists, editors, producers, publishers and practitioners, the Gazette posts new material every few days. Subscribers are alerted by email when important news stories or features are published. Access to articles is by user-name and password. An individual 12-month subscription is $A880.00 (including GST).
