Are you interested in substantive regulations and laws? Do you not want to litigate or practice in transactions? Do you find yourself interested in business or government, but aren't interested in the adversarial system? Try Compliance!
What is Compliance?
Compliance is an emerging field for law and master of legal studies students to serve business or government in promoting companies and agencies that are compliant with the laws, rules, and regulations meant to help keep some consistency in an ever-changing and perilous world. Compliance is not just limited to just laws and regulations but expands into the worlds of Data Privacy and Cybersecurity, where compliance personnel work with IT professionals and lay employees to avoid data breaches.
How can you join this exciting and rapidly expanding field?
Drexel University, in conjunction with the Thomas R Kline School of Law, is starting an initiative to facilitate discussion, dialogue, and substantive training between the silos of Compliance, Cybersecurity, Risk, and Data Privacy. We hope to bring together students and practitioners to produce media in the form of CLE courses, blog posts and discussions, video lectures, podcast and video interviews, and long articles. We have already connected with tens of practitioners and we are looking for between 22 and 25 students to help with the production of this media. We will also be hosting events such as conferences, summits, panels, and CLE courses.
What do you get out of it?
This is an invaluable opportunity to expand your network, learn about the different industries where compliance makes the largest splash such as Insurance, Healthcare, and Finance, get certified in compliance fields such as Data Privacy and Healthcare, attend conferences, get jobs, and get your name on the first academic effort to combine the three silos of Compliance: Legal Compliance, Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy.
