Arbitration clauses are found in many contracts for consumer financial products. By way of the Dodd-Frank Act, Congress requires the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to study the use of pre-dispute arbitration clauses in consumer financial markets. The CFPB also has the power to issue regulations for the protection of consumers consistent with the study. The costs and benefits of such clauses in consumer financial products are thus extremely relevant today, and the issues are multifaceted.

Mr. Kaplinsky will be among several panelists who individually offer a depth of knowledge and collectively represent the full spectrum of viewpoints on this and related issues.
