(p.269) Conclusion
Regulating Law

John Braithwaite

Christine Parker

Oxford University Press

This chapter reconsiders law, in light of some of the insights in previous chapters, as in some ways a ‘meta-regulator’, a regulator of other forms of regulation in society. In this conception, law is just one strand, albeit a particularly significant one, in a web of regulatory institutions that regulate one another to greater or lesser degrees. This chapter examines the growth of other mechanisms and institutions of regulation as something that sets up this meta-regulatory web. While this book has considered a large number of fields of legal doctrine, each of which has the potential to regulate all of the others, for most doctrines most of the time, there is no influence of great import.

Keywords:   society, law, regulation, meta-regulatory web
