The Medill Justice Project publishes materials for the investigative journalism class we support and for the public.

Reporter safety is a serious issue facing news organizations, yet many of them do not have formalized or written safety procedures for their staff. The Medill Justice Project, however, aims to support students and professional journalists with basic safety knowledge and street awareness. As such, in 2012, we created the first Safety Manual in The Medill Justice Project’s history to help prepare students for their field work. It is the first known manual of its kind for student journalists, and one of few, if any, known safety manuals for stateside professional reporters.

We also created The Medill Justice Project Handbook: a compilation of investigative reporting, writing and ethics material, The Medill Justice Project Illinois Criminal Justice Primer and The Medill Justice Project Ethics Book.

In addition, we created The Medill Justice Project Review, Volume I, a compilation of many of our stories published in 2014; The Medill Justice Project Review, Volume II, a collection of our stories published in 2015; and The Medill Justice Project Review, Volume III, a book of our stories published in 2016.

In June 2017, we published the first issue of MJP Magazine, a selection of stories and other news from The Medill Justice Project.
