      Hi Hannah!

      Course is indeed still running, they’re just adding some new courses and materials so they’ll be a greater amount of free things. We can make sure to pop you an email when it’s up again?

    The journotraining website still says ‘coming soon’ for the Media Law courses and their is no contact details on the website to contact anyone to ask when it starts. Any ideas when it will be active?
