This past August, Widener Law adjunct Cary Flitter
gave a guest lecture about “Comparative U.S. Consumer Protection Laws” to an audience of law students, faculty members, and private practice lawyers at the University of Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
After meeting University of Salvador law professor Martina L. Rojo at a consumer law conference in Texas, Professor Flitter received an invitation to come down and speak to her Economic Environment of Law class and a select group of practicing attorneys. He gave an overview of key consumer protection laws in the United States, and spoke on key issues such fair credit reports and debt collection abuse. “The students and faculty were really engaged. I think they found this sort of partial regulation interesting. Argentina, of course, is one of the largest economies in South America yet they do not have such regulation or private remedy in their consumer lending and credit,” says Professor Flitter.
Vice Dean Carlos I. Salvadores DeArzuaga of the University of Salvador sent Professor Flitter a letter expressing the gratitude of everyone in attendance, and expressing a desire for future academic exchanges.
Professor Flitter is a partner at Lundy Flitter Beldecos & Berger, P.C in suburban Philadelphia. A graduate of Philadelphia University, he earned his J.D. from the Delaware Law School of Widener University in 1981. He teaches in the areas of Consumer law and Identity Theft.
