FOI case law update - 5 June 2013

The Campaign for Freedom of Information's next course on 'Information Commissioner & Tribunal Decisions' will be in London on 5 June 2013.

This course, now in its 8th year, deals only with significant Commissioner and Tribunal decisions issued during the past six months. It aims to help experienced FOI practitioners and others with a good working knowledge of the FOI Act keep abreast of new developments. 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, commercial interests and legal professional privilege; 
  • 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 29 years.

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