Journalists' guides to the law
The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP) website has links to a number of articles, reports and practical guides pertaining to laws that affect journalists. In addition to a handbook of first amendment law there are many other resources. Included in many of the reports and guides are 50-state surveys about these laws - for example, there are 50-state surveys of laws governing wiretapping and eavesdropping laws; access to electronic records; photographers' guide to invasion of privacy laws ; and other useful and informative guides. It's a good resource to remember.
