Aims and Objectives
The overall purpose of the seminar is to provide an overview of current issues affecting professional regulation. More specifically, the objectives of the seminar are:

  • To provide a comprehensive update on legal developments in professional discipline
  • To allow participants to advance their knowledge and understanding of trends and debates in professional regulation
  • To provide an overview of the broader policy issues and challenges facing professional regulators today
  • To identify and assess global trends on incentivising workers to report wrongdoing to professional bodies and regulators
  • To examine UK whistleblower protection legislation and to consider ways it can be used to strengthen the role of bodies and regulators

The seminar is of particular relevance to:
1. Professionals with an interest in the field of professional discipline and/ or regulation
2. Lawyers and policy specialists working for professional bodies
3. Regulators- those specifically responsible for the regulation of professional people, but also sectoral regulators (eg in relation to financial services) more broadly who also encounter the general challenge of regulatory relevance, including the specific and critical one of making whistle blowing work.
4. Academics with a research interest in what makes for 'effective regulation' in 2017.
