Congressional Civil Justice Caucus Academy Briefing, "The Role of State Attorneys General in Enforcing Federal Law"

Event Date: Friday, January 25, 2013

Location: Rayburn House Office Building Room 2237, Washington, DC

Program Description:  New laws such as the Dodd-Frank Act have increased the ability of state attorneys general to enforce federal consumer financial provisions. The state attorneys general are also empowered to coordinate with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). What remains to be seen is if this action will remain unique, or if a number of similar actions will soon follow. Before we begin, I wanted to provide a brief background on the Congressional Civil Justice Caucus Academy.


The Honorable Peg Lautenschlager,  former Attorney General of Wisconsin, 2003 – 2007;

The Honorable Mark Shurtleff, former Attorney General of Utah;


Andrew J. Pincus, Partner, Mayer Brown
