ABA Consumer Protection Conference

Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that partner David Mallen is moderating a panel at the Consumer Protection Conference titled, "The National Advertising Devision at 35: Industry Self-Regulation."

From conference website:
We are delighted to announce the Section of Antitrust Law’s 2015 Consumer Protection Conference to be held at Jack Morton Auditorium on Thursday, February 12. The world of consumer protection law and practice continues to evolve at real-time speed, and global developments continue to broaden its scope. In these times of rapid development of the law and practice governing advertising, the internet, and privacy, the Conference is a “must attend” event for enforcers, in-house counsel and practitioners. 

Our speakers include representatives from the FTC, State Attorneys General offices, European Data Protection office, policy thought leaders, scholars, industry, consumer advocates, and other professionals in consumer protection and privacy.

The conference will focus on:

  • Evolving standards for advertising substantiation and third-party liability; 
  • The convergence of international privacy norms and its effect on domestic standards; 
  • The role of the FTC after its first 100 years; 
  • The Internet of Things and big data from the consumer, business, government and NGO perspectives; 
  • The confluence of consumer protection, media and high finance in high status direct-selling markets; and 
  • The social and legal impacts of social media in the emergent Web 3.0.
The Conference setting also provides attendees the opportunity to network with these experts in a welcoming environment, and creates a forum for colleagues in the consumer protection bar to meet and exchange ideas. We hope that you and others in your organization will attend this special program. This conference is only held every other year; so don’t miss the chance to participate.
