Topic areas


The Loyola University Chicago Journal of Regulatory Compliance will host its inaugural symposium on September 23, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois.  The Symposium will examine the role of society and regulation from a substantive, procedural, and organizational perspective.  The Symposium is particularly interested in how institutions organize their operations to comply with rules and regulations, often in a multi-jurisdictional context.  The Symposium will look at the rise of compliance programs as what seems to be a permanent aspect of business in the U.S. and globally.

We are seeking to fill several slots for short papers on any topic within the scope of the Symposium.  We invite you to submit an abstract of no more than 300 words on your proposed topic.  Please submit the abstract to Ryan Meade at by March 11, 2016.  Notifications will be provided by March 31, 2016.

If your abstract is accepted, a first draft of your paper will be due by September 16, 2016.  The paper should be between 3,000-5,000 words. Authors of short papers will be given 20 minutes each to present their papers at the Symposium.  It is our hope to publish all papers in the 2017 issue of the Journal.

The Symposium seeks speakers from any discipline.  The Symposium adopts the mission statement of the of the Loyola University Chicago Journal of Regulatory Compliance: “The Loyola Journal of Regulatory Compliance publishes scholarship from the perspectives of law, economics, philosophy, and ethics.  The Journal seeks to advance interdisciplinary 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.”
