This course, now in its 7th year, deals only with recent decisions 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 and is not intended as an introduction to FOI. Its exact content is dependent on the decisions that have been issued during the period, 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; and
- the cost limit, aggregating requests, invalid requests, advice & assistance and other administrative provisions.
The course will be presented by Maurice Frankel, the Campaign's director, who has worked in the field for 28 years.
