Overview

Why You Should Attend

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently celebrated its sixth anniversary and is undergoing a metamorphosis under Acting Director, Mick Mulvaney. At the same time, some federal and state regulators and attorneys general are ramping up their activity and threatening to fill any void if the successor to CFPB Director Cordray is less aggressive in pursuing enforcement. Also, the volume of private litigation, including class actions, remains high.

2018 will mark the 23rd year of this exceptional program. This year, we will focus on a broad array of recent regulatory, enforcement and litigation issues relating to mortgages; auto finance; credit, debit and prepaid cards; marketplace lending and Fintech; deposit accounts; student loans; and other products and services. We will also focus on new developments pertaining to fair lending, and the TCPA, FDCPA, FCRA, Military Lending Act and SCRA. Join us and our esteemed faculty for an insightful review of this dynamic area of legal practice.
