PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reporter’s Privilege and shield laws vary from state to state, and not all of them are clear about whether their protections extend to student journalists.

This 2-page customizable handout summarizes Reporter Privilege and provides guidelines for mass media and scholastic journalists to better understand their rights, risks, and responsibilities as they gather information and maintain confidential sources.

Instructors can customize the handout to reflect a specific state law. (The downloadable document includes Pennsylvania state law as an example of how to customize the handout for your particular state.)

Information on specific state laws is available at:
