The impact of technology on consumer law is ever apparent in recent federal rulemaking, introduction of the undefined term “FinTech” and news of security breaches and cyber-attacks hitting the front page—or your inbox—on an increasing basis. This program includes discussions on those topics as well as a look at recent high court rulings in the debt collection space and how to deal with the stress of keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of consumer law.

This program will appeal most to lawyers practicing in consumer, debtor and/or creditor law. Attorneys wanting to be brought up to speed on pressing issues and topics in consumer law are encouraged to attend!

This seminar is an intermediate level program.
Also includes 2.0 Bankruptcy and Debtor-Creditor Law specialization credit hours.
