21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 2 - Careers in Compliance: JDs Wanted

21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 2 - Careers in Compliance: JDs Wanted

Richard L. Hermann, 2017.

Investigate a field in which author Richard Hermann says intense demand opens doors to both experienced practitioners and law students with no prior compliance experience. Compliance is exploding all over the map. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics says that compliance is one of the fastest growing occupations in the U.S. The number of compliance officers in the U.S. has more than doubled in the last six years, to around 300,000 and is still rising at the same rate. Robert Half International, a leading recruitment and placement firm, says that the outlook is “very bright for anyone entering into compliance as a career.”

A cascade of laws and regulations, plus vigorous government enforcement, has also upgraded the nature of the compliance function. Consequently, candidates armed with law degrees are viewed very favorably by employers seeking compliance professionals.

Contents include:

  • What is “Compliance”?
  • The Work
  • Organizing the Compliance Function
  • Who Hires?
  • “JD-Advantage” Compliance Jobs and Careers
  • What Does It Pay?
  • Breaking into Compliance
  • Future Prospects
  • And more!
