As a public relations major, I knew that there were going to be many laws related to the field. Little did I know how many laws actually pertained to the communication’s world. I am taking a course now called Law of Mass Communications (COMM 403.) It explains each and every law that may pop up during your work day. It also describes the ins and outs of our justice system. Some examples of what you may learn about include liable, defamation and copyright. These are all important aspects of the public relations profession. I believe that it is important as students going out into the real world soon to fully understand what we may be dealing with. If you have this class as part of your background, it will definitely enhance your knowledge and may give you a heads up in the PR world.
