Sovern Speaks at Teaching Consumer Law Conference

Professor Jeff Sovern spoke at the University of Houston’s Teaching Consumer Law Sovern Two[2]Conference (held in Santa Fe) on May 20. His topic was “Are FDCPA Validation Notices Valid?” and he spoke about the study he and Psychology Associate Professor Kate Walton are conducting, funded by the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges Endowment for Education.

In addition, Professor Sovern was quoted by Law360 on May 5 in an article titled “Battle Over CFPB’s Data Looms In Arbitration War.” According to the article:

“The bureau has been meticulous about relying on its research findings, and I respect the fact that they felt they needed to know more before going further,” said Jeff Sovern, a professor at the St. John’s University School of Law and a critic of the arbitration clauses. “It will be interesting to see what the data they will collect shows.”

He was also quoted in an April 28 story on Bankrate.com headlined “Chase Now Offering Its Customers Deals on Jaguars.”
