Abstract:

The Law of Freedom of Information is set to become the standard work of authority in this newly important field. Published to coincide with the coming into force of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, its comprehensive, analytical approach provides the complete reference volume for practitioners advising on the new legislation: those working within or advising the myriad public bodies upon which the Act imposes new duties regarding the disclosure and handling of information; those advising clients with a personal, professional or commercial interest in obtaining information from those newly obliged to provide it; and those in the business community for whom the Act raises important concerns about the potential accessibility of commercially sensitive information.
