The Law & Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law hosts the Sixth Annual Public Policy Institute on Financial Services Regulation June 7-9, 2016.

Consumer financial protection policy continues to raise challenging questions at the intersection of consumer credit and payment systems, emerging technologies, other areas of law, and larger issues regarding the stability and efficiency of the banking system. The Sixth Annual Public Policy Institute on Financial Services Regulation will examine a number of issues including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s regulation of payday loans and other small-dollar lending, Bitcoin and other block chain technologies regulatory and technological issues, the overlap of consumer payments and the First Amendment (including challenges to state no-surcharge rules on payment cards), and payment security (such as Apple Pay and the “liability shift” rules for payment cards). The program will also feature lectures on the political background to Dodd-Frank and the history of banking.
