On Friday, March 31, 2017, the Center for Corporate Law and Governance and the Rutgers Institute for Professional Education co-hosted a half-day conference, Consumer Financial Protection in a New Era, at Rutgers Law School. The conference brought together practitioners, academics, regulators, and legal advisors to discuss a variety of consumer finance issues. Panelists approached consumer finance issues from both a federal and state law lens; topics included the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s recent enforcement actions and proposed rules, debt collection in state courts, and arbitration clauses in consumer credit contracts. Practitioners, academics, and students attended the conference, and free CLE was available to attendees who committed to taking on a pro bono case for Legal Services of New Jersey.
Rutgers Law students will learn about the issues facing failing companies while competing for scholarship money at the inaugural Hon. Rosemary Gambardella Scholarship Competition. The free event is sponsored by the New Jersey Turnaround Management Association (NJTMA) and is open to the public.
