Reporting restrictions in criminal courts

23 September 2014

NUJ members who cover criminal court proceedings, whether in person or not, need to be aware of the latest guidance for the media, and for judges, to minimise  the likelihood of being in contempt of court, facing defamation claims or disciplinary proceedings at work.

Download the guidance.

This guide applies to written articles, photography, broadcasting and social media.

If you run into difficulties then visit the NUJ legal support website page.
