Meeja Law, written by Judith Townend, is about media law and ethics for online publishers, with a specific focus on English law.
I am a freelance journalist and researcher based at City University London’s centre for law, justice and journalism, looking at legal restraints on the media, particularly the pre-publication process. I’m also very interested in opening up courts data and information. You can read more about my research here.
I helped set up the successful ‘Hacks and Hacker Hack Day’ UK & Ireland tour for the data mining site Scraperwiki, a winner of the Knight News Challenge 2011. I have written for BBC College of Journalism, Global Voices Online, Inforrm, the Guardian, the Media Standards Trust blog, Index on Censorship and Insite. In 2010 I was involved with the citizen-led campaign to End Child Detention Now.
