Panel 2: What Does the CFPB's Future Hold?

Update: 2021-07-29


On July 19, 2021, the Federalist Society's Financial Services and E-Commerce Practice Group sponsored an online conference titled "The CFPB Turns 10: Evaluating America’s Youngest Federal Financial Regulator." The conference concluded with a panel titled "What Does the CFPB's Future Hold?".
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Seila Law last year struck down statutory conditions on the removal of the CFPB Director from office as a violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers. The Biden Administration used this decision to abruptly change the leadership of the CFPB six months ago. This panel will discuss the priorities and actions of the CFPB under this new leadership, and the expected priorities of the agency under its next confirmed Director. The panel will also discuss what should be the future direction of federal consumer financial law and CFPB policy going forward. Specifically, how should the CFPB or consumer law and policy be reformed to improve consumer welfare and the efficient functioning of consumer finance markets? The panelists include a leading national consumer financial services lawyer and two law professors, both of whom also worked for the CFPB.

Todd Zywicki, Foundation Professor of Law, Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University; Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives, Cato Institute
Chris Peterson, John J. Flynn Endowed Professor of Law, University of Utah's S.J. Quinney College of Law
Nanci Weissgold, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP
Moderator: Brian Johnson, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP
