Why You Should Attend
2021 marks the 26th year of this exceptional program, which is considered the premier consumer financial services CLE program in the country.
The CFPB, FTC, HUD and Federal banking agencies are making leadership and priority changes to realign themselves with pre-Trump administration goals and embrace new priorities, including reinvigorating consumer protection and pursuing racial justice initatives. State regulators and attorneys general are seizing on a fresh opportunity to collaborate with their Federal partners to move their agendas. Consumer advocates are aggressively pursuing a wide range of issues, responding to challenges in the courts presented by a reconfigured judiciary. The volume of private litigation, particularly under debt collection laws, the TCPA and FCRA, also remains high. At the same time, the recovering U.S. economy and the increase in technological innovation (including artificial intelligence, data aggregation and Blockchain) has continued to spur new entrants into the consumer financial services industry and the offering of new products by existing industry players.
This popular full-day event will bring together faculty representing a wide range of perspectives ranging from Federal and State regulatory and enforcement agency representatives to consumer advocates and experienced defense and in house counsel who will bring you up to speed on what they are focusing on now and the areas in which the risk of private litigation and enforcement activity remains high. They will address how the panoply of Federal and State laws applies to the broad range of consumer financial services, including mortgages; auto finance; credit, debit and prepaid cards; student loans; marketplace lending and fintech; and payday, auto title and installment lending.
