This course is designed to help students understand the relationship between law and regulation, and the nature of regulation and enforcement. This will be achieved through a careful consideration of theoretical and applied debates. In essence the course asks: what can regulation accomplish and what is beyond its reach? The course includes a variety of case studies and workshops.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify, explain and apply a range of classic and ongoing theories and academic debates on law and regulation, and critically examine the concepts and problems addressed in them;
- Review and critically evaluate the development of past and current regulatory regimes;
- Identify and critically evaluate and research, using a range of research techniques, regulatory regimes by applying critical analysis to the the theories and academic debates studied
- Consider a range of perspectives and values in critically considering the future directions of regulatory regimes;
- Interpret and transmit knowledge, skills and complex ideas on law and regulation to specialist and non-specialist audiences; and
- Independently plan and execute a research project to demonstrate complex legal research principles and methodologies in applying critical analysis and application of legal principles and practice to complex issues.
