2019’s regulatory year-in-review series also marks The Regulatory Review’s 10-year anniversary

December 26, 2019

In 2019, regulators in the U.S. and around the world have faced pressing challenges posed by globalization, political polarization, environmental instability, and social unrest—to name but a few of the many consequential issues with implications for regulatory policy. As the year comes to an end, the editorial staff of The Regulatory Review has put together a special series highlighting many of these developments and showcasing the most widely read essays published during this past year.

As part of the special series, the editorial staff recap the major regulatory news stories of the year, as covered each Friday in the ongoing “Week in Review” column, and then turn to the most widely read contributor essays from among the many we have published by the world’s leading experts on regulatory law and policy. Finally, the editorial staff recap all of the special series of essays published in The Regulatory Review during this past calendar year.

This year-in-review spotlight not only coincides with the end of the decade, it also marks the 10-year anniversary of the most visible global publication devoted to regulatory law and policy: The Regulatory Review. Initially launched in December 2009 by Professor Cary Coglianese, Director of the Penn Program on Regulation, and now produced by law students at the University of Pennsylvania, The Regulatory Review publishes new content every Monday through Saturday—even on holidays and during breaks. Over the last ten years, with nearly 3,000 essays to its credit,The Regulatory Review has become the online source of regulatory news, analysis, and opinion.
