We received the following announcement from the Berkeley Center for Consumer Law and Economic Justice:
[T]he THIRD annual Consumer Law Scholars Conference (CLSC) will take place on March 4-5, 2021. And to keep things lively (and a bit more convenient for those on the East Coast), we will be holding next year's Conference at Boston University.
The Conference will provide those who publish in the field of Consumer Law the opportunity to share their work with their peers, give and receive constructive feedback, and collaborate in setting a research agenda for the field as a whole. Speakers will include both leading scholars and prominent policymakers.
We welcome doctrinal, theoretical, and empirical approaches. Potential topics include the full breadth of issues involving consumers in the marketplace: common law contracts and products liability; UDA(A)P and disclosure laws; food, drug, and public health law; consumer lending, credit reporting, and fintech; loan servicing and debt collection; commercial speech and the First Amendment; federalism, preemption, and sovereign immunity as related to consumer transactions; regulation, supervision, and enforcement by public agencies; private enforcement; the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, and more.
* * * Although the conference is focused on scholarship, practitioners are encouraged to attend.
The call for papers will be coming in June.
