The Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) will present a CLE seminar titled Banking and Consumer Financial Services Law Update.

The program will take place on Thursday, December 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the CLE Conference Center, Wanamaker Building, Juniper Street, Philadelphia.

Panelists will examine issues such as: where the federal bank regulators and the courts stand on federal pre-emption of state banking, licensing and other laws including the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court's opinion in Watters v. Wachovia Bank; the legal pitfalls involved in offering stored-value cards, including gift cards, payroll cards and Internet banking; what the meltdown in the subprime mortgage lending industry means to the banking industry; the difficulties in protecting customers against data security breaches and identity theft, and the "hot button" issues with the bank regulators.

The course planner is Alan S. Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll, LLP.
