yes, im pretty sure you can transfer from comm/law to comm/media. I've called UAC and contacted student central, and they said this is possible, and can be achieved regardless of how you perform in your current subjects (i.e. only dependent on ATAR) This is because the offer date is 27th of June, which is only a couple days after exam period, thus they wont have results to even take into consideration (plus you need a year of tertiary education in order for them to look at WAM) I hope this is all right, cos im planning to switch as well! (I'm extremely hopefuly the aforementioned is possible, and it should be!)
