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.
This guide applies to written articles, photography, broadcasting and social media.
If you run into difficulties then visit the NUJ legal support website page.
