Next Information Commissioner & Tribunal Decisions course

The Campaign for Freedom of Information's next course on significant Information Commissioner and Tribunal decisions will be held on 19 May 2011.
Information Commissioner & Tribunal Decisions - what do they mean in practice?

A half-day course in central London 19 May 2011

This course deals with recent decisions issued in the last 6 months and does not repeat material covered in previous courses. It is aimed at experienced FOI practitioners and others with a good working knowledge of the FOI Act.  Its exact content is dependent on the actual decisions that have been issued in recent months, but typically covers issues such as:
  • "fair" and "unfair" disclosures of personal data; 
  • the FOI/EIR borderline; 
  • the application of specific exemptions including those for breach of confidence and commercial interests; 
  • where the public interest line is being drawn;
  • applying the cost limit, vexatious requests and advice and assistance.
The course will be presented by Maurice Frankel, the Campaign's director, who has worked in the field for 27 years.

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