Course Content (Syllabus)
This course aims to teach the constitutional and legal aspects of broadcasting media (radio and television) as well as New media. First we examine the constitutional dimension of public and private television and the legal framework of the National Broadcasting Independent Authority. Then we study how the existing constitutional and legal framework applies to New Media and social networks, whether these rules are sufficient to regulate new media phenomenon and if there is a necessity to set a new legal framework in this field.
(Obligatory) Written exam at the end of each semester. Students answer to 4 of the six questions given to them and have to write down a brief analysis of each one.
(Optional). Students may conduct a written commentary of National Independent Broadcasting Authority’s decision, or of a Court's decision, chosen from a list of decisions given to them, relative to the subject of the course. This written work is deposited at the end of the semester and may grant the student up to 3 points on his written exam grade, under condition that this grade is not inferior to 5/10. If the student prefers to present his work in class, he earns 1 point + on his written exam grade.
