Telecommunications Law - LAW 842

1-3 Hours

Telecommunications Law considers the jurisdiction and function of the Federal Communications Commission with respect to telephony, cable, satellite, and broadcast communications. In particular, the course considers various typologies of FCC regulation, including models based on free markets and competition, rate regulation of monopolies or oligopolies, and advancing public interest values. The course does not consider the regulation of journalism per se, but instead considers the regulatory and industry structures that frame modern communications.
