Legal Awareness for Regulators
Regulators’ code, principles of regulatory function, judicial review, legal implications and risk are concepts that, to those with limited regulatory knowledge, seem rather abstract. Part of our Law and Legal Awareness series, this training course will help to demystify the legal concepts and terminology that underpin regulatory systems, clarify their workings within the European Union and highlight any international law issues that can arise.
Like any other public bodies, regulators’ decisions can face legal challenge. Through the use of case studies and examples this course offers delegates insights into how regulators defend their judgments.
At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the best possible results from the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Delegates with no legal background from organisations with regulatory and enforcement functions.
Delegates with gain clarity in judicial interpretation of regulators remit, ensuring that robust decisions are made that can be defended in a case of Judicial Review being granted.
