Information Law

Lexis®PSL Information Law is an online practical guidance product for contentious and non-contentious lawyers dealing with Data Protection, Confidential Information, Privacy, Cybersecurity and Freedom of Information issues.

Our content is written and structured to reflect how lawyers would approach these topics in practice. For example, our topic on Data Breaches, Sanctions and Enforcement includes guidance on managing a data security breach as well as template documents for use when handling the breach.

Our Practice Notes set out key principles supported by relevant authority and links through to more in-depth commentary and underlying sources in Lexis®Library, all of which are designed to speed up the task of advising on these fast-moving areas of law.

LexisPSL Information Law is supported by an in-house legal team with extensive experience in practice and dedicated to produce content specifically for busy practitioners. This experience, combined with extensive customer research, has shaped our practical guidance on Information Law issues. We have built and continue to develop our product with the assistance of leading Information Law experts.
