First Amendment
The center organizes an annual campus-wide, day-long event to celebrate the First Amendment and explore its role in the lives of Carolina students.

The UNC Center for Media Law and Policy is an interdisciplinary research center run jointly out of the UNC School of Law and UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication. The center serves as a forum for study and debate about the broad array of media law and policy issues facing North Carolina, the nation, and the world. The center’s work ranges from the legal and policy issues affecting traditional media organizations to the challenges posed by new communication technologies, including social media, the Internet, and mobile technology, and the impact they are having on governments, on the economy, and on cultural and social values throughout the world.

The UNC Center for Media Law and Policy builds on the extraordinary strengths of UNC-Chapel Hill’s highly regarded law and journalism schools, bringing together a diverse group of legal and communication scholars, media professionals, and practicing attorneys. Faculty members and graduate students affiliated with the center conduct media law and policy research, host public events, including UNC’s annual First Amendment Day, and work to educate North Carolina’s business community about the opportunities for supporting and expanding entrepreneurship in the field of information technology.
