Personal life

In 1982, he earned a Master of Arts degree in Journalism from Southern Illinois University, where he went on to pursue his Ph.D. in media law under the supervision of First Amendment scholar Harry Stonecipher; a Master of Studies in Law (M.S.L.) degree from Yale Law School; and a Master in Law degree from Oxford University.


As a journalism and communication law scholar, he has published more than 100 book chapters and research articles in a number of leading journalism and law journals in the United States and abroad since 1985. He is the author of Press Law in South Korea.

Youm's law review articles have been cited by American and foreign courts, including the House of Lords in Great Britain, the Supreme Court of Canada, and the High Court of Australia, and in congressional testimonies on freedom of expression. In addition, his media law research has been used by American and international lawyers in representing their clients in press freedom litigation. As a member of the Communication Law Writers Group, Youm has been involved in writing Communication and the Law, a widely used media law college textbook in the United States. As an area editor, he has edited nearly 50 articles on communication law and media policy for the 12-volume International Encyclopedia of Communication.

He has been named one of seven scholars producing the "most promising" research in journalism and mass communication. Currently, Youm serves on the editorial boards of a dozen major law and communication journals in the United States, England, and Australia, including Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly, Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media, Communication Law & Policy, and Media & Arts Law Review.

He has been profiled in American and foreign newspapers. In September 2011, Forbes.com's columnist Ben Kerschberg noted Youm's tweeting (@MarshallYoum)in "Eight Great Law & Technology Resources." In April 2010, Youm was elected vice president of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC), the premier academic organization of 3,600-plus jmc educators and practitioners in the U.S. and abroad. He will become president-elect in 2011 and president in 2012.
