Issue 22 of our fortnightly rundown of corporations law, Butterworths Corporations Law Bulletin, is now online.
We note in particular the article by Professor John Carter and Alison Williams of Freehills, "Thinking about the Australian Consumer Law":
As society has changed, governments have recognised the growing need to protect unknowledgeable consumers in what would otherwise be “unbalanced” transactions with commercial entities. The result is that various laws are already in place to provide consumer protection.
So where does the new Australian Consumer Law (ACL) fit into this picture and will it make a positive difference to consumers?
