AFSA’s Legal & Regulatory Affairs Department deals with all aspects of the legal environment facing the industry, including legislative issues and regulatory matters. AFSA maintains high-level relationships with regulatory agencies and industry trade groups enabling AFSA staff to provide leadership and expertise to government and consumer advocacy groups (comment letters, amicus briefs, white papers, testimony)
Much of AFSA’s legal and regulatory work is done through the AFSA Law Committee. The Law Committee helps to create and develop AFSA’s judicial, legislative, and regulatory policies and strategies that affect AFSA member companies. Among the benefits of participation in the Law Committee are remaining up-to-date on issues that confront member companies each day, opportunities to network, and the chance to exchange ideas with other in-house counsel in the industry. General counsels or senior attorneys at AFSA Member companies are eligible for membership.
The Law Committee also has six subcommittees: Vehicle Finance, Payment Card, Emerging Issues, Mortgage Lending, Personal Loan and Litigation.
