Today’s post is the 1,000th to appear on FCPA Professor.
I launched FCPA Professor in July 2009 with the simple goal of injecting a much-needed scholarly voice into FCPA issues, exploring the more analytical why questions present in this era of FCPA enforcement, and fostering a forum for critical analysis and discussion of the FCPA and related topics among practitioners, business and compliance professionals, scholars and students, and other interested persons.
At first, I wondered if I would be able to consistently – week after week, month after month, year after year – produce a daily post. Now I force myself to publish just one daily post.
FCPA Professor posts have impacted the issues and events of the day and has grown in ways I did not anticipate. Thousands of diverse readers around the world rely on FCPA Professor for updates and analysis of FCPA and related topics and I am grateful for the comments of others such as:
- “FCPA Professor is the Wall Street Journal concerning all things FCPA-related”
- “FCPA Professor, one of the best law blogs on the planet”
- “If the FCPA Professor didn’t exist, we would have to invent him”
While FCPA Professor may have started as a blog, I invite you to think of FCPA Professor today as a comprehensive website. In addition to informing readers of FCPA news and developments in a timely and in-depth manner, FCPA Professor features among other things:
- links to original source documents;
- a detailed FCPA 101 page;
- a resource portal; and
- hundreds of subject matter categories designed to facilitate in-depth FCPA research and analysis.
All of this takes time, money, and substantial effort.
Unlike other websites in the FCPA space, the content on FCPA Professor is provided free to readers and without compromising and distracting advertisements. The expenses associated with FCPA Professor are my own and FCPA Professor very much represents a kitchen-table project (even though many days I write posts outside on the back patio or in hotel rooms while traveling).
FCPA Professor can and should become more of a reader-supported website.
Thus, if FCPA Professor adds value to your practice or business or otherwise enlightens your day and causes you to contemplate the issues in a more sophisticated way, please consider a donation to FCPA Professor to celebrate this 1,000th post milestone. The donate page is located on the above banner as well as here.
