With the Biden Administration emphasizing fair lending compliance as a priority issue, enforcement and litigation under fair lending laws are likely to pick up. The CFPB, DOJ, HUD and state regulators are likely to become much more active in fair lending in the coming months.

In this webinar, hear from DLA Piper attorneys about what to expect from the CFPB, DOJ and HUD in fair lending enforcement and take a deep dive into the evolving area of disparate impact and disparate treatment testing with our special guest speaker, Marsha Courchane, from Charles River Associates.

Areas to be covered include loan underwriting and pricing, the use of machine learning and alternative data, redlining, HUD’s disparate impact rule, and efforts by creditors to expand access to credit in underserved markets. We will also discuss where we see class action litigation heading in the fair lending space. We will conclude by outlining steps to mitigate fair lending risk, including best practices for conducting fair lending reviews.

Please join us and bring your questions for what will surely be a packed session of useful information.
