This IOS/Ucall seminar on ‘Legal Systems for the 21st Century’ aims to unravel some of the (complementary) weaknesses and strengths of several mechanisms in regulating corporate behaviour, especially in light of non-legal (e.g. psychological) factors that might influence such behaviour.

Questions to be addressed are, e.g., what elements of which of the regulatory mechanisms in place are actually useful for a 21st century legal system? What is wrong with command-and-control legislative interventions? How to circumvent over-arching regulatory and enforcement policies?
