Professor Schmitz to Present at the University of Munich

Professor Amy J. Schmitz will discuss “Crafting Remedy Systems to Address Consumer Deception” as a special guest presenter at the University of Munich in Munich, Germany, May 20-21.

She will discuss enforcement mechanisms currently used for addressing deception like we saw in the VW emissions scandal, otherwise known as “Dieselgate.” Her talk will include explanation of class actions and shareholder derivative actions in the U.S., and will offer new ideas for using technology to more efficiently and fairly provide remedies to consumers that are harmed by deceptive trade practices.
