Event summary

Considered the premier continuing legal education (CLE) program of its kind in the US, PLI’s annual Consumer Financial Services Institute brings together speakers with consumer, regulatory and industry perspectives – ranging from federal and state regulatory and enforcement agency personnel to consumer advocates to experienced defense, in-house and plaintiffs’ counsel.

During this complementary 1.5-day event, the esteemed faculty will bring you up to speed on what they are focusing on now, as well as the areas where the risk of private litigation (including mass arbitrations) and class actions remains high. They also will focus on how the complex network of US and state laws applies to a broad range of consumer financial services, such as credit products, deposit accounts, payments, and consumer reporting and data.
