SOLM018 Principles of Regulation (Sem 1)

Module Description

Regulation covers virtually all significant aspects of modern life. It is here to stay but it remains as controversial as ever. This is an advanced foundational course on regulation. The module examines problems that are common to the regulation of a wide range of industries and fields and considers how these problems are (or fail to be) treated. In particular, the module considers the nature of regulation and its relationship with law, economics and politics, the regulation of risk, standard setting, compliance and enforcement strategies, the issues of accountability and legitimacy and the rise of multi-level governance and transnational regulation. Being ‘problem-solving sensitive’ but 'industry neutral', this module is an ideal complement to more narrowly-focused modules irrespective of choice of LLM Specialism.
