FOI case law update - 28 November 2013

The Campaign for Freedom of Information's next course on 'Information Commissioner & Tribunal Decisions - what do they mean in practice?' is taking place in London on 28th November 2013.

This course, now in its 8th year, aims to help experienced FOI practitioners and others with a good working knowledge of the FOI Act keep abreast of new developments in FOI case law. Its exact content is dependent on the decisions that have been issued during the previous six 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, commercial interests and legal professional privilege; where the public interest line is being drawn; vexatious requests; and the cost limit, aggregating requests, advice & assistance and other administrative provisions.

The course is presented by Maurice Frankel, the Campaign's director, who has worked in the field for 29 years.
