McNae's Essential Law for Journalists Reviews


This textbook is called "essential" for a reason. It is still the go-to law textbook for journalists and journalism students. * Kate Heathman, Journalism Lecturer, Liverpool John Moores University *
Reliable, clearly illustrated and thoughtfully presented. * Ian Bucknell, Senior Teaching Fellow in Journalism, University of Leeds *
Described in the journalism industry as the "Bible", with good reason. McNae's has, for decades, been a constant companion of working journalists. * Kevin Duffy, Lecturer in Journalism, University Of Central Lancashire *
This has always been - and still is - THE most important book for any journalist in the UK. * Nigel Green, crime reporter, investigative journalist, and Associate Principal Lecturer in Journalism at Leeds Trinity University *
An invaluable book for every journalism student grappling with how to write legally and ethically safe stories. * Dave Porter, Lecturer in Journalism, Manchester Metropolitan University *
Essential text for any journalism student and a must for anyone taking the NCTJ media law exams. * Bernie Saunders, Senior Lecturer in Media Law and Journalism, University of Portsmouth *
Important detail is clearly signposted. The law is explained with clarity in a way that is relevant to journalists. Legal jargon is explained. It is equally relevant to students and working journalists. McNae's gets it right , and in truth I'd be lost without it. * Karen Nicholson, Lecturer, Nottingham Trent University *
It is the go-to quick reference text, designed to be of practical use. * David Acheson, Lecturer in Media Law, University of Kent *
It is the journalists' "Bible". * Dr David Clarke, Reader in Journalism and Media Law, Sheffield Hallam University' *
A book that every student on a journalism programme should invest in - and it is one that any working journalist should keep in their desk. * Dr David Baines, Senior Lecturer in Journalism, Newcastle University *
