Adjudication Case Study

The purpose of these case studies is to give participants an opportunity in a classroom or seminar setting to examine a series of articles that have been the subject of complaints to the Australian Press Council and then to consider these in light of the Press Council’s Standards of Practice.

Background is provided for each article selected, as well as a summary of the complaint made about it and of the responses of the publication in question. The conclusions of the Press Council’s Adjudication Panel are also provided.

Lecturers or seminar leaders should ask participants to decide whether in their view the publications acted in accordance with the Press Council’s Standards of Practice in publishing the articles in question.

The materials in this package are set up so that elements can be printed out or projected onto a screen and used in any order a lecturer or seminar leader thinks appropriate.

Teaching notes are available for this training materials package, to assist lecturers and seminar leaders in generating discussion. These were not in the first instance intended for distribution to participants/students. They are available by emailing a request to
