Guest lecturer Kyu Ho Youm will present "A Global Perspective on Press Freedom Issues" followed by a question-and-answer session on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 3 p.m. in 115 David O. McKay Building at Brigham Young University.

Youm joined the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon in 2002 as the first holder of the Jonathan Marshall First Amendment Chair. He previously taught at Arizona State University for 11 years.

Having published more than 80 articles as a communication law scholar, a number of his works have been published in leading journalism and law journals in the United States and abroad since 1985. His articles have been cited by American and foreign courts including the House of Lords in Great Britain and the High Court of Australia, regarding freedom of expression. His media law research is also used often by American and international lawyers representing their clients on press freedom litigation.

Youm, a member of the Communication Law Writers Group, has been involved in writing a popular media law textbook in the United States, Communication and the Law. He serves on the editorial boards of a dozen major law and communication journals in the United States and England.
