The Campaign for Freedom of Information is running the following half-day training course:
– what do they mean in practice?’
London 7 June 2010
The course, which is aimed at those with a good working knowledge of the legislation, highlights the latest developments in the way the main exemptions, the public interest test and the legislation’s procedural requirements are being interpreted.
It will cover the most significant decisions that have been issued since our last course in November 2009. The content will therefore vary, depending on the cases that have been decided, but the course typically addresses issues such as: “fair” and “unfair” disclosures of personal data; the FOI/EIR border, the application of specific exemptions; where the public interest line is being drawn; vexatious requests; the cost limit, advice & assistance and other administrative provisions.
The course will be presented by the Campaign’s director, Maurice Frankel, who has worked in the field for 26 years. Significant discounts are available for multiple bookings from the same organisation.
