Abstract

Stephen Corones in The Australian Consumer Law, explains in a detailed yet accessible treatment the substantive rights and remedies of consumers, and the obligations of traders under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

The ACL commenced on 1 January 2011 and it has been a far reaching national reform. As a result of the ACL there is now one uniform consumer protection law that applies in all jurisdictions throughout Australia and across all sectors of the economy. This book explains the scope and importance of the statutory causes of action created by the ACL. It examines how the general and specific protections inter-relate, the scope for overlap, and why each provision is necessary to provide complete consumer protection.

Since the last edition over three years ago, The Australian Consumer Law third edition has been extensively reworked and updated to take account of the many changes in the law that have occurred during this time. The third edition includes commentary on new legislation, including the Treasury Legislation Amendment (Small Business and Unfair Contract Terms) Act 2015 (Cth) which will extend the general protection against unfair terms to contracts with small businesses.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
