The Legal Symposium will consist of four panels:

  • Overview of a Consumer Collection Law Firm Practice: An in-depth look at the practice of consumer collection law and why creditors utilize the services of attorneys.

  • The Court System Provides a Level Playing Field: Use of the court system as an effective and appropriate method of debt collection provided attorneys and the courts operate in a manner that protects the interests of all parties and preserves the public trust.

  • Legal Collections – The Essential Link to a Successful Credit-Based Economy: The importance and benefit of our credit-based economy, and why responsible legal debt collection is a healthy function of the credit cycle.

  • Attorney-Consumer Communications: A Roadmap to Resolution: The roles and responsibilities of consumers, as well as debt collection attorneys, and opportunities that exist to provide consumers with the best available avenues in which to participate in the process and resolve their debts.

The Legal Symposium will take place at the state-of-the-art Jack Morton Auditorium located at The George Washington University in the Media & Public Affairs Building at 805 21st Street, NW, Washington, D.C. Registrant check-in will begin at 8:15 and the Legal Symposium will conclude at approximately 4:45 pm.  Registrants will receive breakfast and lunch and attendees are invited to a reception hosted by Legal Symposium sponsor King & Spalding at 5:00 pm.
