about this item
Whaley's Consumer Law, Eighth Edition is a concise, clear, and accessible problem-oriented casebook that takes students through the main issues of consumer law: deceptive practices, product quality, and consumer credit. The book employs a popular problems approach-- enjoyed by professors and students for interesting fact patterns-- which illustrates relevant issues and their resolution and helps put consumer law statutes and regulations into context. It covers the Federal Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act (regulating sale of vacation home land-- not mentioned in any other book on this topic), and includes "Quotes for the Attorney’s Arsenal" (statements from famous cases eloquently encapsulate specific points).
The Eighth Edition includes many new cases and extensive commentary on the activities of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; a case on the fraud suits against Trump University; an exploration of how the federal government and the states’ Attorneys General have forced credit bureaus to take consumer complaints more seriously; and an expanded look at cyberspace “click on ‘I Agree’” cases.”
