Right to Information and Privacy
Right to Information or RTI, refers to the right of the Queensland public to access government held information. Information Privacy refers to the fundamental human right of privacy and the rules the government must follow when it deals with an individual’s personal information. Both are key to democracy.
For some time now, information access and privacy laws have been an essential part of an accountable and transparent government. The release of information helps governments engage with their citizens by allowing public scrutiny of decision-making and the protection of personal information grants individuals a right to a private life free from interference. RTI Consultants is a law firm in Queensland that specialises exclusively in Right to Information law and Information Privacy law.
After a couple of years of finding my feet in law, I decided to specialise in the areas of Right to Information and Information Privacy law. I believe passionately that these niche areas of law are fundamental to the operation of a democratic government. Guiding every part of government to ensure it operates according to the highest accountability and transparency standards, building trust between a government and its citizens and equipping businesses and individuals with the knowledge to uphold their rights under the legislation is my personal goal and a conviction to which I hold firm.
I’m Rebecca Murray and I am proud to say that I am Queensland’s expert Right to Information and Information Privacy lawyer.
