Stetson to host free Consumer Protection Fair

Stetson University College of Law, in partnership with AARP Tampa Bay, will host a Consumer Protection Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, as part of AARP’s National Day of Service.

Attendees will have the opportunity to shred sensitive documents and consult expert speakers on consumer protection issues, as well as probate, power of attorney and other important topics.  AARP employees will help attendees sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry and various ways to opt out of junk mail.

Stetson alumna Stephanie Edwards, of Edwards Elder Law in St. Petersburg, and alumnus Will Lucius, director of Special Needs Trust at Raymond James, will speak at the event. Law students will assist with legal tech training, including how to spot dangerous email attachments and suspicious web links. Members of the school’s prestigious Trial Team will conduct a mock trial for the audience.

All services are free, and the event includes free food and parking.

The event will be held on Stetson’s campus, 1401 61st St. South in Gulfport, in the Mann Lounge from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration is encouraged by calling 1-877-926-8300 or going online to
