OverviewAn 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. With the introduction of the Australian Consumer Law within the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, the landscape of consumer protection and product liability law fundamentally changes. A single national regime replaces the consumer protection provisions in the Trade Practices Act 1974 and 17 generic consumer protection laws that existed across the States and Territories. 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.
