Speaker, New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, "Webcast- Recent Developments in Consumer Class Actions"


February 17, 2022 | 2:00 PM - February 17, 2022 | 5:35 PM EST

Featuring: Caroline E. Oks

In New Jersey, consumer class actions are a significant and always-evolving area of law. The nature of these cases range from defective products, to consumer form contracts (e.g. motor vehicles, gyms), to consumer finance and mortgage banking (e.g. foreclosure actions), and more.

This seminar will open with an introduction to class actions and consumer litigation law. After laying the foundation, our panel will then delve into topics including: ethical issues involving arbitration clauses; developments in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and Fair Credit Reporting Act’ an update on the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and foreclosures in New Jersey; and a discussion of the June 25, 2021 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Transunion LLC v Ramirez, where the Court rendered an important holding concerning Article III standing in statutory damages claims.

Much to talk about at this program. Join in the conversation. Come with your questions.
