FOIMan highlights some events that those interested in Information Rights may want to attend.
Last April, the Law Commission began a consultation on personal data sharing. The results will inform the Government’s next steps in this controversial and complicated area. The outcome of the consultation will be reported at an event to be hosted by the University of Winchester’s Centre for Information Rights on 1 July from 3.30pm. The Public Law Commissioner, Nicholas Paines QC will be speaking at the event. It is free to attend, but places must be booked.
A few weeks ago I wrote about an upcoming conference organised by the University of Northumbria. I understand that there are still places for their Information Rights Conference on 13 June (this Friday) in London, and that they are available at a discounted rate of £75. Details of how to book can be found in the conference brochure.
