Description

Consumer Protection Law in Australia provides a clear and detailed explanation of the application and effect of consumer protection and product liability law in Australia.

The second edition is fully revised and details developments affecting the operation of the Australian Consumer Law since its introduction in January 2011, providing readers with a sound understanding of the legislative landscape in which it operates.

It includes an analysis of the recent amendments to the unconscionable conduct provisions introduced by the Competition and Consumer Legislation Amendment Act 2011 (Cth). The regime is positioned within the existing judicial framework and the commentary includes analysis of recent case law decided under the scheme since its commencement, including the High Court decision in Kakavas v Crown Melbourne Ltd [2013] HCA 25.

Consumer Protection Law in Australia is an invaluable guide for legal practitioners, academics and students.
