In today's information-driven society, the collection, use and disclosure of personal information is a critical yet ever problematic issue for government, business and individuals. Access to information held in vast government databanks, and the use of personal information by third parties - in commercial, medical and private contexts - raises unprecedented legal questions, unique privacy concerns and vexing logistical problems.

Newly and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Access to Information and Privacy (2011 Reissue) provides a definitive examination of the statutory and judicial framework that governs the rules, requirements, prohibitions, caveats and exemptions relevant to the fields of both access and privacy.
