Consumer Law and Practice provides undergraduate students and those studying the LPC with concise yet comprehensive guidance. It is also a useful aid for practitioners (including those advising businesses) and non-lawyers requiring information which can be quickly understood. Using an innovative problem-solving approach to the subject, we focus on situations in which clients may find themselves and explain how the law deals with such situations.

“Between the covers is a mine of information clearly and accurately set out … a valuable tool for non-specialist and specialist alike.” The Law Society’s Gazette
