Regulation: Theory and Practice

Regulation: Theory and Practice provides a grounding in the increasingly important and pervasive field of regulation, appropriate for those who find themselves dealing with regulatory matters in both the public and private sectors. 

The unit is designed to enable students to situate their regulatory experience within a firm framework of theory and principle, and to understand, analyse and criticize ongoing efforts to improve the quality of regulation.

Classes are taught in seminar format. Topics covered include:

  • the modern scope of regulation;
  • theories explaining its development and operation;
  • regulatory techniques; and
  • the legal, economic and political environments of regulatory activity.
