This 2-day conference will feature two tracks* focused on bringing Fair Debt Collection Practices (FDCPA) lawsuits. Faculty will be drawn from top consumer rights litigators from around the country.
  • Introductory Track: This introductory track is designed for attorneys with little or no prior experience with FDCPA litigation. Learn about the laws protecting consumers from abusive debt collection practices and proceed to more in-depth sessions on developing these cases and a fair debt collection law practice. 

  • Advanced Track: The advanced track is for intermediate to experienced FDCPA practitioners who want to delve more deeply into developments in FDCPA law and discuss issues related to a busy FDCPA practice. At least one session will discuss issues arising under the Telephone Consumer Practices Act (TCPA).tcpa starAttendees can move freely between the two tracks.
