This volume is a revised version of papers presented at the Oxford Law Colloquium held at St John's College, Oxford, in March 1998. The Colloquium provided a meeting place for discussion between practitioners and academics interested in regulation. This text 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.
