Consumer Protection Law in Australia

Author(s): Alex Bruce

An indispensible guide to Australia's new consumer protection and product liability laws. On 1 January 2011, the largest reform of Australian consumer protection laws ever undertaken commences.

Consumer Protection Law in Australia provides a clear and detailed explanation of the changes implemented by the new consumer protection regime, making the book an invaluable guide for legal practitioners, academics and students. The application and effect of the new Australian Consumer Law is made accessible, to provide a thorough understanding of the new legislative landscape.
