CONSUMERS ARE TENANTS, TOO | The Intersection of Consumer and Landlord/Tenant Law

Though treated as distinct areas, there is substantial overlap between consumer law and landlord/ tenant law. Ryan Peterson, a consumer law litigator, and Dan Suitor, a housing attorney and tenant’s rights advocate will discuss from their complimentary perspectives how these constantly and rapidly developing practice areas can and do interact with one another.

Landlord-tenant law is an under-litigated field, with a lack of binding case law and private representation resulting in a number of legal grey areas. The flurry of activity in the legislature this past session will only increase this interplay, providing opportunities for practitioners bringing or defending new claims. Finally, the presenters hope to spur discussion about applications of the newly revived Prevention Against Consumer Fraud Act.

This CLE is approved for credit through October 8, 2025.
