Please join the Mercatus Center for the first course in the Regulation University series. J.W. Verret, senior scholar the Mercatus Center and assistant professor at the GMU School of Law, will discuss the essential skills for regulatory oversight.

Several key debates this year will focus on the economic impact of federal regulations. The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to offer a series of courses designed to help congressional staff better understand the regulatory process. The first course will use examples from newly-minted financial markets regulations to review:

  • The stages involved in developing and finalizing a regulation 
  • How to find and use information about a regulation 
  • The best tools to help policy makers make the case for or against a change in regulation  

Learn more about the next course in the series, "Who Regulates the Regulators?"  

For counsels working for members of Congress, the Mercatus Center will make applications to the Kentucky Bar Association Continuing Legal Education Commission and the Virginia Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Board to approve this course for one (1) general CLE credit hour. More information on the status of CLE credit applications will be available at the course.

This event is free and open to all congressional, executive branch, and federal agency staff. This event is not open to the general public. Food will be provided. Due to space constraints, please no interns without prior approval.
