The first edition of this work achieved acclaim by pulling together a disparate subject with no statutory framework into a comprehensive reference on the subject.
This new edition updates its coverage, examining the historical origins of the action for breach of confidence, the present state of the law, and discusses particular areas of difficulty and possible solutions. It also covers confidentiality in relation to particular professions, including medical advisers, bankers, employees and lawyers, and covers confidentiality in the legal process.
New content includes coverage of cases under the Human Rights Act 1998, such as Douglas v Hello! Ltd, Venables v Newsgroup Newspapers Ltd, along with the Data Protection Act 1998 [Campbell v Mirror Group Newspapers], the Civil Procedure Rules and the increased use of mediation in the legal process. It also examines the General Medical Council's code of standards on confidentiality, and the Banking Code (2001) dealing with banks' treatment of personal customers
