Analysis of a Libelous Communication: Learning from Today's Events.
De Mott, John
In discussing the teaching of communications law, this paper presents a teaching technique for helping students apply the abstract principles of libel law to real situations by having them discuss an item from a mass publication that is defamatory toward some individual or organization. After presenting a series of questions to be discussed, the paper provides an illustration of how one student analyzed and discussed a libelous article. (TJ)
