The Law of Freedom of Information: Main Work and First Cumulative Supplement
This set includes the first cumulative supplement, which brings the main work up to date to June 2005. Written by a team of barristers from New Square Chambers, The Law of Freedom of Information provides comprehensive analysis of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, with detailed coverage of the related subjects of confidentiality, privacy, data protection, official secrets, the internet and whistle blowing. The book contains practical examples of how the Act works, drawn from cases and practice in other jurisdictions where freedom of information has long been a reality, eg United States, Ireland, Canada and Australia. The author team has extensive practical knowledge of how government and the public sector work and how they interconnect with the media and business worlds. The book has a refreshingly practical approach and includes a guide to best practice which will be essential reading for all public authority lawyers.
