This work pulls together a disparate and fast-developing subject to provide comprehensive guidance on the law of confidentiality and its impact on different areas of law.

It examines the historical origins of the action for breach of confidence, the present state of the law, and discusses possible solutions in areas of uncertainty. It also deals with confidentiality in relation to particular professions, including medical advisers, bankers, journalists, teachers, clergy, employees and lawyers, and covers confidentiality in the legal process.

This new edition has been updated throughout and includes detailed analysis of high profile and groundbreaking cases such as:-

  • Mosley v News Group Newspapers Limited,
  • Ministry of Defence v Griffin
  • and R (Corner House Research & Another) v Director of Serious Fraud Office.

  • Illustrates how confidentiality operates within the legal process, with guidance on legal professional privilege and public interest immunity
  • Discusses the implications of the Data Protection and the Freedom of Information Acts
