About this course

This programme is based in the Department of Law and the Department of Governmentand offers the following benefits:

  • The chance to study regulation within a systematic framework – with the opportunity to specialise to suit your interests.
  • The programme has a multidisciplinary core combining studies in law, political science and institutional economics.
  • Our distinctive approach concentrates on institutional issues and behaviour in regulation – regulatory bureaucracies, interest groups, legislators and courts – in addition to the economic aspects of regulation. We aim to bring together the contrasting North American and European perspectives on regulation, and to juxtapose experience of regulatory practice with theoretical ideas about how regulation works.
  • Teaching staff are leading researchers in the field; several are involved at the highest level in advising government and regulatory agencies. The core course is taught across all members of the MSc Regulation team: Robert Baldwin, Julia Black, and Martin Lodge.
  • LSE and London provide an international centre for the study and practice of regulation. There are regular talks from practitioners in the field and students can participate in seminars and conferences inside and outside the School. The Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation offers many opportunities to take part in leading-edge research.

Regulatory growth and reform, like privatisation, has been an international 'policy boom' in recent years. Governments have increasingly used regulation in preference to other policy instruments. Regulation therefore plays a central role in the contemporary understanding of law and public policy. As a field of study, regulation requires a multi-disciplinary approach, because legal, political and economic issues are intertwined and each has to be understood to make sense of the overall process.

You should usually have achieved an upper second class honours degree or its equivalent and have an interest in, and experience of, related areas of law, public administration, politics or economics.

How to Apply

You must apply early, as competition for programmes at LSE is intense. Your application will not be considered until we have received all your supporting documents. Wherever possible you should submit all of your documents with your online application. You should expect to wait an average of 8 weeks for a decision when applying for a taught programme, decisions for a research programme may take longer than this.

Important: LSE expects all applicants to complete their application materials without the use of paid agents, credentials services, or other paid professional assistance. The use of such services may lead to the rejection of application materials, the revocation of an admissions offer, cancellation of admission, or involuntary withdrawal from the University.

You should also upload your supporting documents with your application. You should scan and upload your transcripts and request references to be submitted online. The online application allows you to submit your complete application securely and quickly. Your application will not be processed until we have received all the required documents.

Supporting documents

All applications must be accompanied by supporting documents. Some of these are required by all applicants, others are only needed for specific programmes. Details of specific requirements are given on the programme pages.

  • Use common sense when reading this information. We are being as clear as we can about our requirements and there are no trick questions or hidden traps.
  • We ask you to provide the documents as requested (or as close to them as you can manage) so that we can make a good decision on your application.
  • Don't overload your application with extra documents - the selectors won't have time to read them and we really don't need them.
  • Don't panic about the length of your personal statement or research proposal - just be sensible about what you want to write and how much a selector might want to read.
  • We offer guidance to help you. Read it and act sensibly on it.

Please do not send supporting documents directly to departments as this will delay your application.
