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 annual issue offers a forum for both speculative and practical discussion.

The Center for Compliance Studies publishes the Journal of Regulatory Compliance on an annual basis exclusively online. Annually, the Journal accepts topics for publication based on a symposium topic. 

In addition to the publication of scholarly articles, the Journal also maintains a blog, Inside Compliance, to provide up-to-date blend of academic and practical reviews of regulations, administrative law, and operational approaches to compliance. The blog aims to:

  • Provide continous 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 their regulatory risk.
