Next week, I'll be speaking on two panels at the Practicing Law Institute's 16th Annual Consumer Financial Services Institute in New York (February 28-March 1) and, a month later, in Chicago (March 31-April 1). The sessions will also be groupcast and webcast by PLI.
Among other things, this year's two-day program will:
- Explore the impact of the consumer-related provisions of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act, including:
- Title X's creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
- Title XIV's impact on mortgage regulation
- Analyze the Dodd-Frank Act's impact on federal preemption standards and state regulatory perspectives
- Examine the impact of AT&T v. Concepcion on the validity of class action waivers
Other speakers include my co-blogger Professor Jeff Sovern; Peggy Twohig and Leonard Chanin, two key officials responsible for standing up the CFPB; Tim Fernholz of the New America Foundation, who has written extensively on the CFPB; Dennis Cuevas of the National Association of Attorneys General; and representatives of state AG offices. The co-chairs are Alan Kaplinsky, John Roddy, and Julia Strickland.
