This new and timely work provides up-to-date and detailed analysis of the new Unfair Contract Terms Law (UCTL) that was introduced as part of the Australian Consumer Law reforms of 2010, and which took effect in each state and territory from 1 January 2011.
The UCTL represents a radical change in consumer protection law and in contract law.
In Unfair Contract Terms in Australia experienced author and senior lecturer Dr Jeannie Paterson explains the operation of the UCTL and considers the implications for standard ‘boilerplate’ terms in consumer contracts. The work also examines the background to the reforms and utilises precedents drawn from similar regimes that have operated in Victoria and the UK.
Unfair Contract Terms in Australia will be highly useful for litigation purposes and compliance work. It will appeal to competition, consumer and commercial solicitors and barristers as well as regulators involved in drafting, reviewing and enforcing standard form consumer contracts.
Traders dealing with consumers will find this work invaluable as they review their contracts to ensure compliance with the legislation.
Unfair Contract Terms in Australia is a vital resource for the adjustment to, and ongoing compliance with, the new law.
