Since opening its doors for business, the CFPB has aggressively tested the limits of its jurisdiction. A prime example is the CFPB’s fair lending guidance for companies making “indirect auto loans,” which significantly impacts how auto dealers operate despite Dodd-Frank’s carve out of auto dealers from CFPB oversight. In this webinar, we will discuss the CFPB’s continuing “jurisdiction creep” and explore the limits of the Bureau’s jurisdiction.


  • An overview of the CFPB’s jurisdiction
  • The areas in which the CFPB has extended or is likely to attempt to extend its jurisdictional reach
  • The jurisdiction arguments relied on by the CFPB
  • The jurisdictional arguments a target can use for challenging CFPB action
