Now in its Seventh Edition, Australian Consumer Law: Commentary and Materials contains an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of all key provisions in the Australian Consumer Law. Areas covered include the general prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct, specific protections against unfair practices, unconscionable conduct and unfair contract terms, consumer guarantees and product safety and liability. There is also detailed coverage of private and public remedies and enforcement powers. The careful selection and curation of cases, combined with detailed expert commentary, makes the book an essential resource for students of Australian Consumer Law as well as practitioners in this area.

This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate new developments such as:

  • The expansion of the protection of the ACL’s unconscionable conduct provisions to public corporations;
  • The increased protection for consumers and businesses resulting from the raising of the monetary threshold to $100,000 for determining who is a “consumer”;
  • The implementation of key recommendations from the 2017 Australian Consumer Law Review, including higher maximum penalties for a contravention and wider powers for the ACCC to obtain information; and
  • Landmark new cases including Gill v Ethicon, ACCC v Fuji Xerox, Moore v Scenic Tours, ACCC v Employsure, Vautin v BY Winddown Inc and Capic v Ford Motor Company of Australia Pty Ltd.
