Masterclass: Consulting with a relevant third party
This face-to-face masterclass will explore all aspects of the formal consultation process and explain when, why and how to consult with third parties. There will be a focus on unpacking the legislative requirements of section 37 of the Right to Information Act, applying that to real life examples and working in small groups to apply your learnings to different scenarios. Questions, discussion and shared learning is encouraged.
