The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act continues to bring significant changes to the finance industry. A large number of quality articles and treatises have been written about the Act.
I was recently asked to locate some quality online resources to assist attorneys in remaining current with the Act as a supplement to the other resources. I have included a select few of the resources I discovered. This is far from a comprehensive list and I welcome any additional suggestions or recommendations:
Dodd-Frank.com – This series of blogs by the attorneys at Stinson Leonard Street covers a variety of aspects of the Act. Topics include securities, banking, employment, insurance, energy and much more. A subscription option is available or you can add it to a RSS feed.
CFPB Rundown – Ballard Spahr, authors of the top-rated CFPB Monitor, maintain an excellent resource to follow the “regulatory developments and other significant activity of the CFPB.” The website lists the various proposed and final rules, reports, and notices relevant to Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It includes links to the appropriate section of Act, as well as, the important dates.
Dodd-Frank News Center – Wolters Kluwer Law & Business offers an easy-to-read news center dedicated to the Dodd-Frank Act. The entries are generally brief summaries with hyperlinks to relevant materials.
And, anyone who regularly reads my blog posts knows that I love compiled legislative histories. If you want some great reading, the Law Librarians’ Society of Washington, D.C., has posted the Dodd-Frank legislative history HERE.
