Syracuse launches institute devoted to law, media & politics

September 19, 2006

Peter Lattman of WSJ’s law blog reports Syracuse has launched an institute devoted to law, media & politics.

From The Institute for the Study of the Judiciary, Politics, and the Media’s literature: ‘In the 21st century, a complex mix of legal principle, political maneuvering and media coverage surrounds the judicial decision-making process in the United States, affecting the state of judicial independence and the rule of law.’

IJPM is a collaboration between Syracuse’s law, public policy, and communcations schools. Keith Bybee, a constitutional law professor at the Maxwell public policy school, founded the institute. Associate directors are law school professor Lisa Dolak and Newhouse communications school prof Mark Obbie, a former executive editor at the American Lawyer.

Though they have a publications section, no blog as of yet. Guess they’re not extending media beyond main stream media.
