Bump. What is it that you want to know about the module, exactly?

And to be clear, because Media Law is running this year does not mean it will be running when/if you study at Durham. The modules change every year.

I am interested in the possibility of pursuing a career in Sports Law so was wondering if there is any link to that area in the Media Law module.

Thank you for pointing that out

Yeah, if you look on the module description here, it covers "Restraining the media to protect privacy and copyright" and talks about the ECHR. This basically covers the tort of confidence and the tort of privacy. For me, these were both covered in-depth in my undergraduate tort module (though this is because I had a privacy specialist on the tort module, so might not be everywhere). Back to the point, this module does cover protecting famous persons' privacy.

In fact, in the 2017 exam paper one of the problem questions is "A Premier League footballer ..." modelled on the Douglas v Hello! case.
