Legal Awareness for Regulators

"Very engaging, excellent research on the specific areas relevant to DVSA, also very entertaining delivery. Good work Greenberg!"


Officers and staff of statutory regulators and other public authorities deal with the law all the time, whether as policy-makers, case workers or operational advisers. For those who do not have a formal legal qualification, navigating the law can be challenging.


This course aims to give those working in regulatory bodies the skills to navigate the law, and to acquire a working
understanding of the institutions and processes of the law. It will also begin by mapping the UK legal system, to contextualise and consolidate participants’ prior knowledge.


Legislation and the legislative process, subordinate legislation and quasi-legislation, are considered from the regulators’ perspective. Administrative law in general, and judicial review in particular, are examined from a practical perspective, including a discussion of how to liaise effectively with the organisation’s legal officers. Finally, this course ensures that participants have a sufficient understanding of a glossary of core legal terms and concepts to be able to liaise with lawyers effectively and efficiently.


This course uses case studies relevant to participants’ organisations and is interactive in order to ensure that it builds on and does not replicate what participants already know.


At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each participant gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
