Was your last media law training since before the Defamation Act 2013 was passed and a number of other legal changes affecting journalists were made? Or perhaps you haven't been trained in this area at all? Or just need a refresher? If any of these apply to you, the Association of British Science Writers can help.
We are running an all-day media law workshop from on Monday September 25 at the Medical Society of London. Expert trainer David Mascord will cover the main areas of law and media regulation currently affecting the media.
The workshop costs £125 for ABSW members, and £200 for non-members, including vegetarian lunch and refreshments. As full membership is £40, this is an incentive to join! This is a significant discount to commercially-provided courses, which typically come in at over £200. The NUJ encourages writers to do this kind of training every 12-18 months. Course numbers are limited, so book early.
