About this Unit
In 2011, this unit replaced by 200774 Consumer Law and Policy. This unit builds on concepts learned in Contracts and Commercial Law. It provides a detailed examination of misleading or deceptive conduct under section 52 of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth), and related provisions dealing with false or misleading representations. Unconscionable conduct under the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) and relevant industry codes will also be covered. The protection offered to consumers through this regime will be explored in a range of contexts, including regulation of advertising, the financial services sector and e-commerce. Enforcement through civil and criminal proceedings, including accessorial liability, and a range of defences to these actions will also be covered.
