The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) turns three on July 21, 2014. Created under Dodd-Frank, the CFPB has already made a lasting impact on the consumer protection legal landscape and in how consumer financial services providers do business. This panel discussion will examine both the Bureau's history and its future, and will include case studies and trivia. We'll discuss the formation of the CFPB; the use of its supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking authorities since it began operations in 2011; and what's on the horizon.
