|Title:||The Tangled Web We Weave: Complexity in the Australian Consumer Law||Contributor(s):||Lunney, Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/13755||Abstract:||The paper will explore some of the complexities that have been added to the consumer protection regime in Australia by the passage of the Australian Consumer Law ('the ACL'). In particular, it will look at the new scheme of consumer guarantees introduced by the legislation and how these guarantees interact with other parts of the ACL such as the strict liability that attaches to defective products. While some of these difficulties existed under previous versions of consumer protection legislation, the ACL has done little to eliminate or reduce these difficulties. The result is that consumer law in Australia remains complex even after a major reform designed to simplify this area of the law.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Centre for Comparative and Public Law and Asian Institute of International Financial Law Seminar, Pokfulam, Hong Kong, 6th November, 2013||Conference Details:||Centre for Comparative and Public Law and Asian Institute of International Financial Law Seminar, Pokfulam, Hong Kong, 6th November, 2013||Source of Publication:||Centre for Comparative and Public Law (CCPL) Conferences and Seminars||Publisher:||University of Hong Kong||Place of Publication:||online||Field of Research (FOR):||180126 Tort Law||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.law.hku.hk/ccpl/events/HKUPoster-06Nov2013-ProfM_Lunney.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 338
