Regulation is one of the most important mechanisms by which the federal government sets policy. This course offers a comprehensive examination of regulatory theory, policy, and practice, focusing on analytical requirements for estimating the impacts of proposed regulatory alternatives and evaluating the effects of existing regulations. It provides a legal foundation for understanding regulations’ role in public policy, and examines the relationship between Congress, regulatory agencies, executive branch oversight offices, the public, and the courts.
Participants will learn how to:
- Conduct regulatory impact analysis, including how to assess environmental, health, safety, privacy, security, and financial risks, and evaluate a regulation’s effectiveness, benefits, costs, incentives, and unintended consequences.
- Apply government guidelines for risk analysis, data quality, privacy, peer review, information collection, and regulatory review.
Instructors are experts in the field of regulation, and include former executive branch officials and professors from The George Washington University schools of public policy, public health, and economics.
