As part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, Congress instructed the CFPB to study the use of pre-dispute arbitration clauses in contracts for consumer financial products/services. Congress instructed the CFPB to prepare a report with the results of the study.
As of now, the CFPB is in the process of conducting the study, and in December 2013, the CFPB published its preliminary results.
Presentation will cover the preliminary report and findings, and any updates.
