Annenberg students participate in media law program at Oxford University

Visiting professor Monroe Price was co-convenor and session leader at The Media Law and Policy Global Foundation Programme July 18-30, at Oxford University in England. The program was organized by The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy at Oxford University in collaboration with the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University New York.

The programme introduced participants to the multitude of issues presented by the new communications technologies -- Internet, satellite, advanced multi-channel cable television-- that all present extraordinary questions of law, policy, and cultural change. Participants also discussed the rapid changes in technology that present issues for scholarly and judicial debate, and ways of thinking about and analyzing case law, statutes, and law review articles.

Participants included Annenberg Ph.D. students Kimberly Meltzer, Nicola Simpson, Chris Finlay, Amalia Prado, Moira O'Keeffe, and Lokman Tsui, as well as Susan Abbott, Senior Research Coordinator, Annenberg Project for Global Communications Studies.
