Regulation and Deregulation is a revised version of papers presented at the Oxford Law Colloquium held at St John's College, Oxford, in March 1998. The Colloquium, organised by the Norton Rose M5 Group and the Faculty of Law of the University of Oxford, provided a meeting place for discussion between practitioners and academics interested in regulation. This book makes available to a wider audience the fruits of those discussions. Current themes in the debate about how best to regulate are explored, concentrating in particular on the regulation of utilities and of the banking and financial services industry. Regulation and deregulation are of considerable, and increasing, importance in Britain and the wider world. This stimulating book will be welcomed by practising and academic lawyers in the regulations field, especially those concerned with the books particular areas of focus.
