Regulatory Policy

This class builds on the required Legal & Regulatory Process class to enable students to understand how the legal principles of regulatory law translate into actual policies affecting any business operating in America. Almost all major industries are currently subject to some form of regulation. Those managing those businesses-and those introducing new ones-inevitably interact with regulators: courts and administrators. It is thus vital for them to understand the goals these policy-makers are pursuing, their motivations, and the legal tools at their disposal. This course will provide students with the instruments to do so. To achieve that aim we will survey the emergence of American regulatory law, its treatment of specific industries as examples, the economic rationales animating regulatory law, and the most recent controversies affecting it (e.g., the Great Recession of 2008, net neutrality, antitrust and big tech).
