Using the FOI Act! Training for requesters, 23 April 2013

Do you want to learn how to use the Freedom of Information Act? Are you already using the Act, but want to know more about how the Information Commissioner and Tribunal are interpreting key provisions?

While making a FOI request is straightforward, making an effective request is more difficult. The Campaign's practical course is designed to help requesters make effective use of the legislation. The morning session provides a working guide to the legislation, covering both the Freedom of Information Act and parallel Environmental Information Regulations, and includes an interactive section on drafting requests. The afternoon session is more advanced and covers some of the key decisions made under both regimes and explains their implications for you. We think most requesters will benefit from attending the whole day, although you're free to attend only one of the sessions if you wish.

Further information and a booking form are available from the Campaign's website.
