The Center for Consumer Law at the University of Houston Law Center, in cooperation with the University of New Mexico School of Law and the National Association of Consumer Advocates, is holding its tenth biennial international teaching consumer law conference. The theme this year is "Teaching Consumer Law: Where Have We Been—Where Are We Going? The Conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the "City Different," one of the most interesting cities in the United States.

The Conference will focus on traditional issues of consumer law, in the context of significant changes in technology, privacy, social media and the political and judicial environment.
