Today's Top Hits: Recent Decisions That Should Be on Everyone’s Playlists
Legal Learning Webinar
This session will provide you with recent FDCPA, FCRA, and TCPA decisions that everyone should be talking about. Do these decisions have staying power, or are they just flashes in the pan. What FDCPA tunes are being hummed by the courts? Is Reg F making a splash in the litigation scene, curtailing litigation by clarifying standards? Will Hunstein stand the test of time? What new FCRA cases are on the top of people’s playlists? Are there any TCPA decisions headed for the top 100? Are the Courts singing about tried and true legal claims, or are their some new up and coming legal theories. Learn all about recent litigation that are taking the pop charts by storm in this session from subject matter experts Eileen Bitterman of Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., L.P.A., June D. Coleman of Messer Strickler Ltd., Eeva Wendorf of Gurstel Law Firm, P.C., and Chantel Wonder of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani.
CLE is pending for this webinar.
National Creditors Bar Association is a national provider of legal educational content. NCBA’s goal is to provide its members with as many opportunities as possible to earn Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. Some NCBA webinars state that they are pending approval. If a webinar is pending approval, it means that NCBA’s education staff is awaiting confirmation of approval for CLE credit from the accrediting body of a particular state; it should be noted that individual states have different response and approval rates. NCBA expects that the course will be approved for the credit amount and type listed, but approval is not guaranteed. An attorney can still take the course at their own discretion, though.
It is not uncommon for a course which is pending approval to not be approved until after the webinar has taken place. Once an official decision notice arrives from the state, NCBA will notify attorneys who have completed the course as soon as possible via email, and will re-issue any certificates of completion to reflect the updated state reporting numbers. However, it is recommended that attorneys do not view webinars that are pending approval close to their CLE deadline, as NCBA cannot guarantee that a course will be approved in time.
National Creditors Bar Association will seek MCLE accreditation, with the assistance of the ABA MCLE, for this webinar. NCBA will seek General CLE credit hours in 60-minute-hour states, and in 50-minute states, subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules. States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. A link for CLE requests will be provided to webinar attendees who have met the attendance and engagement requirements.
