Leave a comment

We wanted to let our readers know about the upcoming one-day ABA Consumer Protection Conference on February 3, 2011 in Washington, DC.

Given your interest in privacy law, we think you will find the conference to be extremely valuable and time well spent.  Our speakers this year include:

  • FTC Commissioners Julie Brill, Edith Ramirez, and J. Thomas Rosch

  • Canada Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart

  • Tony West, Assistant Attorney General, DOJ

  • David Vladeck, Director, Bureau of Consumer Protection, FTC

  • Joel Winston, Associate Director, Division of Financial Practices, FTC

  • Sarah Mathias, Associate General Counsel, FTC

And we have representatives from the California and Texas Attorneys General Offices, the National Advertising Division, the Center for Democracy & Technology, Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Bankers Association, among others. 

The speakers will address what to expect in 2011 in consumer protection enforcement; new advertising substantiation rules; new and evolving privacy law; the expanding scope of third party liability in the CP realm; ethical considerations relating to social media in investigations and litigation; and new strategies in private advertising litigation challenges.  We’ll also have a welcome reception the evening before that will provide an excellent opportunity to meet the speakers and other attendees in an informal setting. 

In short, the conference will be a great networking opportunity, as well as a way to stay on top of the ever-evolving rules in consumer protection, advertising, privacy, and data security law.

The full program brochure and registration information are available on the ABA’s website here.  The signficant discount for early bird registration ends in early January, and seats are filling up fast, so we urge you to register soon if you plan on attending.
