What the Bankruptcy Practitioner Needs to Know About the FDCPA and FCRA

Event Description

This is an in-person event. Remote participation is available for the CLE portion.

The MSBA is adhering to CDC guidelines . Currently in Hennepin County the transmission rate is medium. Masks are welcomed but not required for this indoor event.

Ever wanted to know if and when your clients can sue for inaccurate credit reports or aggressive debt collection practices? Three experienced consumer rights attorneys will provide a primer on federal and state consumer protection laws regarding credit reporting and debt collection, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. In addition to the basics of what creditors can and cannot do, they will provide practical advice on how to spot actionable claims against creditors.

Following the CLE, please join us for a reception honoring this year's recipients of the Raeder Larson Pro Bono Service Award.
