To date, regulatory scholarship has mainly been applied to specific legislative programs and/or agencies for the social and economic regulation of business. In this volume, a cast of internationally renowned legal scholars each apply a 'regulatory perspective' to their own area of law. The volume examines the collision of regulation by law with regulation by other means and provides an innovative regulatory perspective for the whole of law.
