"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik

Campaign for Freedom of Information

We were asked to post this up…the cost of the course will however limit the ‘class’ of punters that could attend! See pdf for details…

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

The Campaign for Freedom of Information is running a training course for Freedom of Information requesters in central London on Thursday 16 September 2010. The course is in two parts:

The morning part will provide an introduction to the legislation covering both the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations.

The afternoon part will examine some of the key decisions made under the two regimes and explain how they can help you obtain information.

We think most requesters will benefit from attending the whole day. However, very experience requesters may prefer to just attend the afternoon.

The courses will be presented by Maurice Frankel, the Campaign’s director, who has worked for the Campaign since it was established in 1984 and by Katherine Gundersen who has been the Campaign’s research officer since 1999.
