The MSBA's Consumer Litigation and New Lawyers Sections Present
"The ABCs of Federal Consumer Credit Protection"
CCPA. TILA. FCRA. FACTA. FDCPA. Federal consumer-protection law is an alphabet soup of dozens of statutes that serve many different purposes, yet are codified together in a tightly interrelated statutory scheme that began with a single statute — the Consumer Credit Protection Act, enacted in 1968, which became the foundation upon which dozens of later statutes were built. This seminar will trace those statutes’ history, from the original Consumer Credit Protection Act as it was written 44 years ago to the modern statutory scheme. The seminar is geared toward beginners who are looking for a simple introduction to and overview of federal consumer-credit-protection law.
Attendees are encouraged to participate in the New Lawyers Section business meeting following the program.
