Abstract

Media trial and law have a controversial relationship. It is due to the fact that the media works for the public but doesn't have knowledge of law, so in any trial proceeding law has a different perspective than the media. Media platforms are just given information regarding the case and it impacts the mindset of the general public at large which can cause riots and furthermore issues. This paper addresses the Durkheim theory with relation to media trial.

Keywords: Media, Trial, Durkheim, Law, Jurisprudence
