To stimulate academic discussion of the role of regulatory compliance in today’s business landscape, Loyola has launched the Loyola University Chicago Journal of Regulatory Compliance. The Journal publishes scholarship from the interdisciplinary perspectives of law, economics, philosophy, and ethics. The Journal seeks to advance academic dialogue on managing regulatory risk in a commercial enterprise, the experience of the regulated actor, and analysis of regulations in the context of organized efforts to comply with law. Each bi-annual publication offers a forum for both speculative and practical discussion of regulatory compliance issues, trends, and developments.

The Center for Compliance Studies publishes the Journal of Regulatory Compliance on a bi-annual basis exclusively online. The Journal hosts an annual symposium in the Spring of each academic year and accepts topics for publication in the Spring Edition of the Journal based on the symposium topic chosen for that year. 

In addition to the publication of scholarly articles, the Journal also maintains the student-run blog, Inside Compliance, to provide up-to-date reviews of regulations, regulatory developments, administrative law, and operational approaches to regulatory compliance. The blog aims to:

  • Provide continuous exploration of what compliance means, both broadly for all regulated actors, and more specifically within certain industries;
  • Disseminate information about the “regulations” to which actors must conform, particularly the unfolding of new regulations which is not a weekly occurrence but a daily happening;
  • Serve as a resource on how regulated actors manage regulatory risk and compliance.
