The 2016 presidential election’s effect on the CFPB and the consumer financial services industry is the subject of considerable speculation and interest. On Wednesday, February 8, 2017, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm ET, we will hold a special webinar, “Consumer Financial Services Under the Trump Administration,” to discuss many of the questions that are now being asked about the future of the CFPB and consumer financial services regulation. Those questions includes how Director Cordray’s departure from the CFPB before his term expires in July 2018 would affect the CFPB, the likelihood that the CFPB will finalize pending rulemaking, the impact of Republican control on the FTC, and the future role of state attorneys general, departments of banking, and private civil litigation.
In addition to Ballard Spahr partner Chris Willis, the webinar will feature two renowned consumer law professors: Professors Jeff Sovern and Dee Pridgen. Professor Sovern is a coordinator of the Consumer Law & Policy Blog. More information about the webinar and a link to register is available here.
