REGULATORY LAW & POLICY This course provides a unique educational opportunity for anyone interested in contemporary developments in regulatory law and policy across a variety of issue areas. Throughout the term, course participants follow regulatory developments in real time as well as encounter some of the most up-to-date research on regulatory issues. The primary work of the course centers around the production of The Regulatory Review, a daily, student-produced on-line source of regulatory news, analysis, and opinion that is widely read around the world. The format of weekly meetings varies, ranging from early lectures on the regulatory process to in-depth discussions of contemporary regulatory issues, and from critique of peer writing samples to analysis of current research articles. Course participants complete short writing assignments every other week which may be selected for revision and publication on The Regulatory Review through a peer editing process. The emphasis of these assignments is on producing high-quality writing of publishable caliber. Participants have the opportunity to focus their work on the regulatory law and policy issues that interest them the most. This course is only open by permission of the instructor. Law students wishing to enroll in this course must submit an application via email to the Registrar at reg@law.upenn.edu (with a recommended cc: to ccoglian@law.upenn.edu) by Monday, July 8th, listing your name and class/year or program and answering the following questions: Why would you like to participate in the Regulatory Law & Policy course? Specifically, how does a writing-intensive course focused on regulatory issues fit with your educational and professional goals? Students will be notified whether they have been accepted for enrollment on or before Monday, July 15th. This course meets weekly throughout the year, and students may enroll for the Fall Term, Spring Term, or both terms. However, priority in the Spring Term will be given to students who successfully complete the course in the Fall Term, so space may be extremely limited, if not unavailable altogether, for new students wanting to take the course in the Spring Term. In addition, early in the Spring Term the current editorial board of The Regulatory Review makes its selection for the next year's board members, so students interested in serving on the editorial board of The Regulatory Review in the future are typically best served by participating in the Fall Term.
