The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) formed a four-member taskforce to review U.S. consumer financial laws. The taskforce will examine the current legal and regulatory framework and provide its recommendations for ways to improve the federal consumer financial laws and regulations. The taskforce members are Dr. J. Howard Beales, III, Dr. Thomas Durkin, L. Jean Noonan and Todd J. Zywicki. Mr. Zywicki will serve as the Chair of the taskforce. Mr. Zywicki is a professor of law at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School. During law school I had the privilege of taking two courses taught by Mr. Zywicki, an engaging and brilliant professor.
