'Information Commissioner & Tribunal Decisions' course

A half-day course presented by Maurice Frankel, director Campaign for Freedom of Information:

Central London 1 November 2007, Liverpool 6 November 2007, Bristol 8 November 2007

The course is aimed at practitioners with a working knowledge of the legislation. It will look at the implications of key decisions from recent months on the main exemptions, public interest test and procedural requirements. It will examine the approach being taken by the Commissioner and Tribunal in part by discussing apparently similar cases which have reached different outcomes.
Issues will include: "fair" and "unfair" disclosures of personal data; protection of commercial interests under FOI and EIRs; disclosures that inhibit frankness; vexatious requests; where the public interest test has tipped the balance; when is information "held"; neither confirming nor denying - decisions to date; advice and assistance.

There are significant discounts available for more than one booking from the same organisation.
