Media Law

Practice Area

From restrictions on court reporting through to the rich ECJ jurisprudence on privacy rights in an era of seemingly-unrestricted paparazzi activity, media law has come to occupy a prominent position in the wider assemblage of practice areas.

Media Law in Ireland by Eoin Carolan and Ailbhe O’Neill remains the dominant, authoritative text in this emergent area, offering compelling analysis on issues like the theoretical justifications for freedom of expression, defamation and privacy in the internet age as well as the oft-contentious concept of press regulation.

Aimed at practitioners and businesses alike, The Law of Advertising in Ireland by Patrick Ambrose provides targeted insight into the regulations and restrictions governing advertising in Ireland, including an in-depth consideration of consumer protection law as it applies to advertisements.
