Abstract:

"This edition has been updated to reflect new developments in both case law and legislation including the introduction of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), which replaced 17 generic consumer protection laws that existed across the States and Territories with a single national consumer law that is found in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth). The ACL introduced a number of major changes to consumer protection laws in Australia which affect the contractual relationship between parties in a number of respects including consumer guarantees, manufacturers' warrantees and unfair contracts. Each of the chapters to the book commences with a clearly articulated set of objectives, a list of the key cases and the principal legislative provisions relevant to the topic at hand. Each chapter concludes with a problem and a worked solution."--Anthony Lo Surdo.
