Exclusively for our valued Alumni and their friends, this is an exciting opportunity to take part in this select Masters elective for professional development without the onerous requirements of a full student enrolment.
Learn about a range of regulatory instruments and their practical applications.
CLASS DATES: 6, 7, 10, 11, 12 July, 9.00am-4.30pm
Dual Delivery Mode
This is a dual delivery mode where Alumni & Friends registrants and Monash students share their classroom experience. Registrants benefit, continuing their professional development but are not enrolled as students and do not complete unit assessment for credit.
This class provides an introduction to the range of instruments which can be used by regulators to obtain compliance. While it mixes theory and practice, it is oriented towards the practical application of regulatory methods and examines their strengths and weaknesses, the empirical evidence as to their effectiveness and the dangers in their use. Topics covered will include: regulation and regulatory design; state regulations versus social regulation; taxonomies of regulatory methods; input versus output-based regulation; rewards and incentives; choosing the best methods; ordering methods; regulatory impact statements; trust, technology and information; and economic, market and private regulation.
Registrants will be able to:
apply knowledge and understanding of the concept of regulatory design with creativity and initiative to new situations in professional practice;
investigate, analyse and synthesise complex information, problems, concepts and theories in relation to the taxonomies of regulation;
conduct research into the major techniques of regulation and the tools available to implement them based on knowledge of appropriate research principle and methods; and
use cognitive, technical and creative skills to generate and evaluate at an abstract level complex ideas and concepts relevant to strengths and weaknesses of the regulatory techniques identified.
Who should attend
Law, government and allied professionals with an interest in the regulatory legal issues.
