[Webinar] FTC Rulemaking: Underutilized Tool or National Nanny Renewed?

July 8, 2020 at 12:00 PM ET

This expert panel will examine recent calls for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to engage in substantive rulemaking under the competition and consumer-protection prongs of Section 5 of the FTC Act. How far does FTC statutory authority under 6(g) extend? Is rulemaking appropriate as a matter of policy? How has FTC rulemaking fared in the past and what guideposts should apply?

FTC Commissioner Noah Phillips will give honorary introductory remarks.
