LSE Law School has, for a number of years, been a national and international centre of strength in the field of regulatory studies. Staff have contributed leading books and articles on a plethora of general regulatory issues, ranging from the uses of rules and principles in regulation, and the relationship between competition law and regulation, to the challenges of regulating risks, from the operation of regulation at different levels of government to the potential of new regulatory styles such as ‘nudges’. Scholars within the law school have also contributed state of the art studies of particular regulatory domains, including: financial services; new technologies, cyberspace and proprietary right in the digital sphere; journalism and the media; insolvency; and consumer credit. Regulatory courses are offered in a host of subjects at the Undergraduate and Masters level and LSE Law School combines with the Government Department to offer the MSc Regulation degree. The globally-renowned LSE Short Course on Regulation is also run by LSE Law School staff.
