One of the assignments for the Media Ethics and Legal Issues class I am co-teaching was to do a presentation on a legal scenario a journalist or citizen might face.

Juleus Ghunta is a local author who has just completed his Master’s degree. He has also written a lovely children’s book called Tata and the Big Bad Bull.
