It's a little tricky sometimes to figure out from the descriptions which sessions at the AALS Conference will touch on consumer protection; sometimes the blurbs refer to topics which are not covered in the sessions. I'm listing the ones I can identify here, and if anyone knows of any others, please mention them in the comments. Pat McCoy of Connecticut and I are speaking at the Financial Institutions and Consumer Financial Services Breakfast which runs from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 on Friday the eighth. We'll be talking about the case for the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Pat, of course, is a leading writer on predatory lending. I plan to argue that the Fed failed to implement Truth in Lending in such a way as to help subprime borrowers understand what they were getting into in that the disclosure forms for many of the loans were misleading and essentially useless. I believe a CFPA could have done better. That event requires a ticket which has to be purchased in advance. The description of the main meeting of that section (Friday 10:30 to 12:14) mentions regulation of consumer financial products, so perhaps it will touch on consumer law as well. The description of the Section on Real Estate Transactions (Thursday, 2:00 to 5:00) refers to the mortgage foreclosure and credit crises. The Defamation and Privacy Section (Friday 4:00 to 5:45) lists as its topic "Fusion Centers and Beyond: New Challenges to Privacy." The Remedies Section (Friday 4:00 to 5:45) includes in its blurb a reference to the subprime securitization crisis. The Section on Commercial and Related Consumer Law (Saturday 10:30 to 12:15) will focus on software contracts. Did I miss anything?
