Criminal Media Law


We understand criminal medial law as the area of criminal law, criminal procedure law, and regulatory law which includes the basic constitutional principles which particularly affect media companies and their employees. Pauka, von Dreden & Link regularly defends the employees of well-known media companies in the sectors of television, newspaper reporting, and publishing as the result of criminal charges pertaining to the content of publications and the research of publications. Moreover, we also advise media companies from these fields preventively on matters such as the parameters of criminal law for covert research.  

Holger Link and Benedikt Pauka are the authors of the "Handbook on Criminal Media Law" which will be published by the Carl Heymanns Publishing House in December 2015.
