From November 6 through 8th, I’ll be heading down to Tampa, FL for the National Association of Consumer Advocates‘ annual Consumer Rights Litigation Conference. It’s going to be awesome. I mean, look at some of the lecture topics:
“Civil Rights Litigation – Getting and Crunching the Data” – for those Fair Housing Act cases.
“ABCs of the Fair Credit Reporting Act” – I like to think that I already know all alphanumerically abbreviated important points of FCRA, but a refresher never hurts.
“Fighting Repossessions in the 21st Century: New Technology and Legal Strategies” – Repo man stories never get old.
“Dealers Add-Ons, Subtracting Payments from Consumers, Multiplying Profits for Dealers, and Dividing Policy Makers” – Self-Explanatory.
“How to Handle the Math in Mortgage Servicing Cases” – Because apparently I’m not the only one who absolutely hates poring through pages and pages of mortgage payment history printed in a manner where the columns never match up.
“Federal Preemption of State Laws after Dodd-Frank”
“Helping Online Payday Borrowers” – ‘For The LORD will Plead their cause, and plunder those who plunder them’ Prov. 22:23
“The Ethical and Legal Restrictions on Confidentiality Agreements and Sealed Documents”
“The Predatory World of Student Loan Collections: How it Works and What Can Be Done”
“Payment Processors and Originating Banks”
“Jake Halpern Book Signing – Bad Paper: Chasing Debt from Wall Street to the Underworld”
“Medical Debt (and Affordable Care Act Issues)”
“Installment Lending: A Growth Industry Begging for Regulation and Lawsuits”
“Plenary – FILM SCREENING – Lost in the Fine Print (2014, Alliance for Justice)”
“Manufactured Housing: Defending Foreclosures and Attacking Defects in the Homes”
“Challenging Financial Fraud and Scams Aimed at Older Adults”
There’s more. But I’m not going to blog about them since it’s time to get going home to put a roof on my kids new playground I built in the back yard. It is VERY exciting. I love my job.
