Retaining the position it has held since first publication, the fifth edition of the leading practitioner text on information law has been thoroughly re-worked to provide comprehensive coverage of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the GDPR. The treatment of data protection now extends beyond accessing personal information, to include all personal data rights and corresponding obligations.

The work continues to provide the most thorough analysis available of the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations (and their Scottish equivalents). As with earlier editions, every tribunal and court decision has been reviewed and, where required, referenced. Common law rights, local government rights and subject-specific statutory information access regimes are all covered. In addition, there is in-depth treatment of ECHR and ECJ law as it applies to information rights, both as separate chapters and referenced into the other text.

Information Rights has been quoted by courts and tribunals, and is used by practitioners, judges and all those who practise in the field. The new edition maintains its style of succinct statements of principle, supported by caselaw, legislative provisions and statutory guidance. The work has been organised with an eye to easy navigation and browsing, with a practical, easily-followed structure and paragraph headings throughout. The new edition has been divided into two volumes:

  • Volume 1: Commentary
  • Volume 2: Statutory provisions and other materials
