Product description

While legal professionals are no strangers to regulations, the perplexity of the mechanisms to challenge the validity of regulations and rules makes regulatory law an area of specialized knowledge beyond the reach of most lawyers and government officials. The process by which regulations are made, and the controls imposed by legislatures on the law-making powers of regulators, are also a ‘black box' little understood by government officials and legislators themselves. Regulatory Law and Practice, 3rd Edition takes a multi-jurisdictional approach to regulatory law principles and regulatory processes, describing case law and regulatory processes in jurisdictions across the Commonwealth and beyond.

Part I discusses the discipline of regulatory law and its role in society. Part II explains the principles imposed by the courts to limit the exercise of regulatory powers. Part III outlines the principles that govern regulatory processes, and compares the strengths and weaknesses of the controls on regulatory law-making across jurisdictions. Clear, detailed, and practical, this book demystifies regulations and the process by which they are made.
