Why You Should Attend
2020 marks the 25th year of this exceptional program, which is considered the premier consumer financial services CLE program in the country.
The leadership and priorities of the CFPB, FTC, OCC and FDIC and federal banking agencies have changed under the Trump Administration. While these entities are still active in enforcing consumer financial services laws, state regulators and attorneys general have increased their enforcement activity to fill any void created by decline in activity at the Federal level. The volume of private litigation, particularly under the TCPA and FCRA, also remains high. At the same time, the improved economy prior to Covid-19, the deregulatory atmosphere at the Federal level, and the increase in technological innovation (including artificial intelligence, data aggregation and Blockchain) has resulted in new entrants into the consumer financial services industry and the offering of new products by existing players in the industry.
This popular two-day event will bring together faculty representing a wide range of perspectives ranging from Federal and State regulatory and enforcement agency representatives to experienced defense, in house counsel and consumer advocates who will bring you up to speed on what they are focusing on now and the areas in which the risk of private litigation, including class actions, remains high. They will focus on 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; payday, auto title and installment lending; and deposit accounts.
Join us and our esteemed faculty for an insightful review of the intersection between new technologies and new products and existing regulatory frameworks.
