About the Authors
  • Court Reporting in Australia, first published in 2005, uses the experience of reporters and subeditors to present a practical view of reporting on the legal system. Peter Gregory avoids the rigid fashion in which media law matters are usually described and, while he covers such vital areas as defamation and contempt, he focuses on the experiences and lessons to be learned from court reporters on the job. He highlights the problems and common mistakes likely to land journalists and media organisations in trouble. It features information and realistic advice from court reporters working for metropolitan media outlets as well as revealing how they perform their daily tasks; for example, preparing television news reports when no pictures and no story are available. Practical and useful as well as theoretical: no one who reports on legal matters can afford to be without this book.

    • Examines how to get case information from within the Australian courts to the public at large
    • Discusses relations with journalists, court officials and lawyers, and members of the public affected by the courts
    • 'Reality reporting' exercise involving court reporters
