American Bar Association Civil Rights and Social Justice Section 2023 Economic Justice Summit: Panel Discussion of the Proposed Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act

Numerous studies report that default judgments are entered in more than half of all debt collection actions. This panel will discuss trends and policy development in the debt collection space and will address the forthcoming Uniform Debt Collection Default Judgments Act. This is a uniform act designed to provide consumer debtors with access to information needed to understand claims being asserted against them and identify available defenses. It will also advise consumers of the adverse effects of failing to raise defenses or seek the voluntary settlement of claims and make consumers aware of assistance that may be available from legal aid organizations. The Uniform Act is scheduled for final review and approval at the July 21 to 27, 2023 Annual Meeting of the Uniform Law Commission.
