The Langara Journalism Review provides essential coverage of the issues, trends, events and personalities that are changing the face of B.C. media. Journalists, educators and corporate communicators turn to LJR to better understand their world, and the dynamic role of journalism in modern society.

The LJR is produced annually by Langara journalism students, see previous editions here. Throughout the course of a semester, this group of five students has worked tirelessly to produce a product they could all be proud of. Meet the team behind the LJR.
