Please note: The CLE portion of the evening will be 2 hours (120 minutes) from 4pm to 6pm.

Join us for an in-depth analysis of the current enforcement regulatory priorities from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and The National Futures Association (NFA). A networking reception will follow the CLE course portion of the evening.

Due to the recent changes under Dodd-Frank, both the CFTC and NFA have increased enforcement initatives and activities.  Join us as CFTC and NFA panelists address recent expansion to both CFTC and NFA powers and jurisdiction over certain products under Dodd-Frank.  They will also address their processes for investigating and filing civil enforcement actions, recent enforcement cases and priorities, and their respective roles related to commodities, swaps and other products within their jurisdiction.

Topics:
1. Understanding CFTC and NFA Jurisdiction

2. Processes Used to Investigate CFTC/NFA Enforcement Matters

4. Respective Roles of CFTC/NFA and Interaction With Other Regulators
