Held at Festival of Legal Learning
The Consumer Law and Consumer Credit Symposium offers courses on a variety of issues related to the representation of consumers, with a focus on issues related to consumer credit law. Those who counsel consumers, those who counsel businesses that deal with consumers, and those who want to catch up on some of the rapidly evolving changes and regulations in the consumer market place will want to attend.
Participants may select from these courses specifically geared to consumer law or consumer credit or select from the broad array of other courses also available at the Festival of Legal Learning.
