This subject provides students with solid knowledge about the basic legal concepts and principles of relevance for the various professions in the media and communication fields. The main focus is placed on constitutional rights and guarantees with the purpose of conveying the ability to discern the legal implications of their future activities and to establish guiding principles for day-to-day situations. The crucial feature of good learning in this subject is not the acquisition of detailed legal information, even less the mastering of legal theories, but rather the development of a strong legal awareness around the respective field and the capacity to make balanced assessments of often conflicting legal values.
