"CFPB: Redefining the Consumer Credit Market by Defining 'Abusive' Standards" telephone seminar for ALI-ABA

This event has already occurred.

On July 21, 2011, a new government agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) came into existence. During this teleseminar, a panel of two consumer finance experts will discuss the new Bureau and its implication on consumer financial protection. Chaired by Suzanne Garwood, Partner at Venable, this 60-minute audio-only program will examine:

  • the CFPB's structure, powers, and enforcement priorities;
  • key initiatives, including the "Know Before You Owe" Campaign, and how the Bureau’s priorities foretell its perceptions about disclosures and abusive financial products;
  • the New Supervisory Manual, including examination guidelines for Mortgage Servicing likely to be an indicator of the Bureau’s "hot button" issues;
  • anticipated collaboration with other government regulators; and
  • the Bureau’s Interim Rules and what they suggest about the Bureau’s enforcement and administrative powers.
