Competency
In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:

Apply socially responsible practices when responding to various communication problems and scenarios
Evaluate how ethical and legal issues impact communication messages and goals
Scenario
You work as a communication specialist for a large company that has recently been faced with a lawsuit regarding sharing private information. In light of the recent lawsuit, you have been asked to train internal staff on legal and ethical best practices for communication to reduce the likelihood of another legal battle, but also to ensure that the organization is being socially and ethically responsible in its communication practices. Your training will be reviewed by the organization’s attorney before being finalized and presented; however, the organization is confident that your expertise in media law and ethics will mean that the in-house attorney will not need to make significant changes.
