The FTC is undertaking a historic effort to draft new rules that will impact every facet of the national economy. Many companies and legal scholars are questioning the FTC’s authority to draft certain of the broad rules it has proposed. During this session, we will focus on the FTC’s statutory authority to craft rules, recently-announced proposed new rules, and how these proposed new rules might affect the FTC’s enforcement strategies. We will also cover recent trends in the FTC’s enforcement strategy for already promulgated rules.
