Consumer lawyers routinely review loans, including auto loans, payday loans, tax loans, and pawn loans. All of this paper is an opportunity: experience teaches that many loans violate the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). TILA claims can take many forms and serve many purposes, from creating powerful counterclaims in individual debt collection cases, to forming the basis for class actions. This webinar will provide hands-on tools for identifying and litigating TILA closed-end credit cases.

• How to evaluate whether to bring a TILA claim.
• How to navigate TILA litigation, including individual vs. class actions, damages, likely defenses, use of experts, rhetorical techniques, etc.
