Why You Should Attend
2019 will mark the 24th year of this exceptional program, which is considered the premier consumer financial services CLE program in the country.
The leadership of the CFPB, FTC, and FDIC and federal banking agencies has changed under the Trump Administration. While the priorities of those agencies have also changed, all of them are still very active in enforcing consumer financial services laws. At the same time, state regulators and attorneys general have increased their enforcement activity to fill any void created by the decline in activity at the federal level. The volume of private litigation, particularly under the TCPA and FCRA, has remained high. We will bring you up to speed on what the regulators and enforcement agencies are focusing on now and the areas in which the risk of private litigation, including class actions, remains high.
We will also focus on regulatory and compliance issues that are implicated by new products and new methods of advertising, originating and servicing consumer financial products and services. The improved economy, 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. We 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.
