‘Inside Compliance’ Blog Debuts New Authors, New Look
Loyola’s Journal of Regulatory Compliance launched last year at the first annual symposium of the Center for Compliance Studies. Since then, members of the Journal have been hard at work not just editing and preparing a new issue for publication, but also building something unique among law journals—a blog to showcase members’ writing and commentary on regulatory compliance.
‘Inside Compliance’ provides updates and commentary on issues of regulatory compliance and risk management concerns affecting professionals across the country. Its content includes analysis of significant laws and regulations that impact every sector of the economy—ranging from healthcare to transportation to privacy and security, finance, and even athletics. Inside Compliance aims to be as far-reaching as compliance itself.
Prior readers of the blog may have noticed that Inside Compliance had a makeover during the summer; it’s now easier to access archives and search by topic to pull up posts on specific subject-matter areas. Additionally, there are over 35 JD students who will be writing and contributing to the blog over the 2017-2018 year. This year the blog will also feature interviews with compliance professionals and regulatory attorneys, as well as guest contributions from alums, academics, and Loyola’s MJ and LLM students.
For Journal members, contributing to Inside Compliance is not intended to be just another line on their resume. It’s a way of practicing skills that will serve them well in their future careers. Thought leadership—legal marketing’s go-to buzzword—is not something taught in the classroom, yet it is increasingly how attorneys and professionals distinguish themselves. Cultivating a professional online presence, keeping up with legal news and developments, learning to be fluent in the many languages of networking . . . this is how any attorney becomes an informed opinion leader and the go-to person in their field of expertise. And these are the skills that Journal members practice through the Inside Compliance blog.
We’re excited to launch a new year, and look forward to all that our members will do!
