If you are a student journalist or assisting student journalists and have a non-urgent media law-related concern, you can e-mail the SPLC your questions and comments. Please fill out this form as completely as possible as the information is necessary to accurately answer your questions. (If you need to send an attachment, you can email it separately, but be sure to fill out the form below first.) Your message will be sent directly to the SPLC legal staff.

E-mail questions are usually responded to within one to five business days. For more urgent assistance, please call us directly at (202) 785-5450. 

Note: We strongly suggest you complete this form on a private computer outside of school and using your personal e-mail account. Messages sent from an account or a computer affiliated with a school or place of employment are often not private and, in the case of public employee e-mail, may be subject to disclosure under a state's open records law.
