For scholars of regulation, the core area of study is ‘regulation’ in the sense of ‘the intentional activity of attempting to control, order or influence the behaviour of others’. It incorporates three basic requirements for a regulatory regime: the setting of standards; processes for monitoring compliance with the standards; and mechanisms for enforcement of the standards. There are at least three different, but overlapping, ways in which the contributors to this book apply a regulatory lens to law. The first involves a dialogue between lawyers and regulationists about the questions and methodologies in their respective areas of scholarship and how they can and do intersect. The second involves the consideration of the varying regulatory purposes or orientations of different areas of law, and how they interconnect and compete with each other. The third focuses on how law interacts with other forms of regulation or normative ordering.
