OCU Law School Offers Conference on New Federal Business Laws


A conference to help companies comply with new federal laws and regulations is being offered by the Oklahoma City University School of Law and the Conference on Consumer Finance Law.

"The New Federal Business Laws: Privacy; Anti-Terrorism; Corporate Responsibility; and Bankruptcy" is scheduled Dec. 5-6 in Dallas.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, U.S.A. Patriot Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act and proposed federal bankruptcy reforms have created compliance issues for businesses.

In addition to lawyers, business owners and corporate executives, the conference will help those in the banking, financial services and other businesses and professions understand the new rules, said Alvin C. Harrell, OCU professor of law, program coordinator and executive director of the Conference on Consumer Finance Law.

"The challenge for business owners is that these new federal laws are both comprehensive and contradictory," said Harrell. The Gramm- Leach-Bliley Act enhanced individual privacy by restricting business use of customer records, whereas the U.S.A. Patriot Act was designed to eliminate privacy rights that might impede the war on terrorism.

"Many of the privacy guidelines set forth in Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act seem inconsistent with the requirements of the U.S.A. Patriot Act -- yet businesses must somehow find a way to comply with both," Harrell said.

In addition to Harrell, panel members will include Robert D. Ballieu, an attorney with Bankers Systems Inc., St. Cloud, Minn.; Norwood P. Beveridge, OCU professor of law; Denise Crawford, securities commissioner, Texas State Securities Board; Irving Faught, administrator of the Oklahoma Department of Securities; Pat Fitzgerald, OCU professor of Business; Samuel M. Lohman, partner in the Lohman, Schwab, Flaherty and Associates law firm, Geneva, Switzerland; Elena Lovoy, partner in the Hudson Cook law firm, Linthicum, Md.; Marlene Martel, Ford Credit, Dearborn, Mich.; Laura N. Pringle, a principal in the Pringle & Pringle law firm, Oklahoma City; Susan Barnes de Resendiz and Ross Rose of the Dykema Gossett law firm, Chicago, Ill.; Jeffrey P. Taft of the Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw law firm, Washington, D.C.; Jacob Thiessen of the Goodwin Procter law firm, Washington, D.C.; Mike Voorhees, partner in the Voorhees & Voorhees law firm, Oklahoma City; Anne Wallace with the Alston & Bird law firm, Washington, D.C.; and Lawrence A. Young, partner in the Hughes, Watters & Askanase law firm, Houston.

The conference is approved by the Oklahoma Bar Association for 11 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of Ethics.

The program will be at the Westin Galleria Hotel in Dallas. Pre- registration is $795 and registration at the door is $825. OCU School of Law alumni and members of the Conference on Consumer Finance Law will receive a $200 registration discount. For those unable to attend the conference, written materials may be purchased for $195.
