Gain a full understanding of the scope of FOIA, the Open Meetings Act, and the Local Records Act in Illinois.

Illinois law addresses access to public records (Freedom of Information Act), access to public meetings (Open Meetings Act) and preservation and destruction of public records (Local Records Act). The Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act both express a strong legislative policy in favor of transparency through open conduct of government and public access to government records. It is important that due consideration be given to a fair balance between that legislative policy and the ability of government to conduct its affairs.

This topic is designed to provide you an opportunity to review the full scope of the law and receive an update on developments in its interpretation. Receive information about all recent decisions of the Public Access Counselor and be provided with practical information about how to effectively manage FOIA requests and to comply with the Open Meetings Act and Local Records Act.
