MLRC has determined to provide a means for individual academics to receive certain of MLRC resources and create a relationship with the organization. The basic terms are as follows:
To be eligible, an individual needs to be a full-time faculty member at a university, college, law school, or other academic institution.
MLRC is a media law defense-oriented organization dedicated to maximizing free expression in the U.S. and abroad. It is therefore a condition of subscribership that an Academic Subscriber, as defined by the benefits outlined above, commit to the same defense orientation required of attorneys and law firms who participate as MLRC members. In particular, it is inconsistent with academic participation in the MLRC for an academic to be engaged in active litigation against a media defendant on a content-related matter such as defamation, invasion of privacy or related claims, whether the academic member is acting as an on-the-record advocate, a behind-the-scenes consultant, or an expert witness (testifying or non-testifying). A subscription for an academic would cease if the academic undertook to represent or otherwise participate in litigation in such a matter on behalf of a plaintiff against a media defendant (including any journalist, author or other individual engaged in the acquisition or creation or publication of content for mass media) in which there was a claim for defamation, invasion of privacy or related claim.
Academic subscriptions cost $500 per academic year.
