Federalist Society To Explore Dodd-Frank On Oct. 14 In Clayton
The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is probably one of the more contentious pieces of legislation to become law in the last decade. Often referred to only as “Dodd-Frank,” the bill passed in response to the Great Recession to help the country avert another economic meltdown, in part by reforming the financial services industry. Yet critics argue that the bill did very little to protect the United States against the issues that made the recession so deep and damaging.
What do the experts think? Did the law protect Americans? Did it leave the U.S. economy exposed? The St. Louis Federalist Society sponsors a panel event featuring U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Dist. 3-Mo.), Saint Louis University Law professor Ann Scarlett, and attorney Gregory Jacob. The panel will discuss those issues from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Mon., Oct. 14 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Clayton.
Reservations, which close on Oct. 11, can be made here. Should be a very interesting event.
