The effective regulation of areas such as competition law, securities, financial services and taxation requires the availability and use of enforcement techniques, including litigation. This course examines the procedural aspects of litigation in the regulatory context. The course addresses litigation issues common to all regulatory schemes such pre-litigation processes which are characterised by a regulator’s investigation and information gathering powers and criminal law aspects of regulatory litigation. Three different regulatory schemes and their regulator (Competition Law/ACCC, Securities Law/ASIC and Tax Law/ATO) are then examined from the perspective of enforcement and litigation.
