Collection attorneys, judges, scholars and subject matter experts will assemble at The George Washington University Law School in Washington D.C. on Oct. 15 for a “Legal Symposium on Consumer Debt Collection” presented by the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys (NARCA).
Four panels will focus on:
- 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;
- An in-depth look at the practice of consumer collection law and why creditors utilize the services of attorneys;
- The roles and responsibilities of consumers, as well as debt collection attorneys, and the best available avenues for consumers to participate in the process and help themselves resolve their debts;
- The importance and benefit of our credit-based economy, and why responsible legal debt collection is a healthy function of the credit cycle.
“NARCA has enjoyed tremendous success at becoming recognized by federal lawmakers and regulators as a valuable resource for information relating to consumer debt collection and creditors’ rights law,” said Joann Needleman, NARCA president-elect and chair of the NARCA Legal Symposium Task Force. “The Legal Symposium on Consumer Debt Collection will broaden public knowledge and understanding and provide an ideal opportunity for experts to examine and discuss the balanced approach, processes and solutions that collection attorneys bring to the table.”
