    About the Symposium
    In July 2010, The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). In September 2010, President Obama and Treasury Secretary Geithner named Elizabeth Warren as Assistant to the President and Special Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the CFPB. The CFPB has been politically controversial from the beginning. Indeed, several Congressional bills have already been proposed to alter its structure and to limit its authority. Richard Cordray, former Attorney General of Ohio, has been named the first CFPB Director.

    This conference will look at the CFPB in its first year and evaluate what it has accomplished so far, and future initiatives it may undertake. It will bring together CFPB officials, practitioners, and academics who are uniquely qualified to examine these issues. The participants will also discuss how best to protect consumer borrowers from lender overreaching in a manner that is sensitive to the functioning of credit markets and the banking system.
