Butterworths Trading and Consumer Law covers not only unfair commercial practices and criminal measures regulating consumer transactions but also fair trading and civil liability for goods, services and digital content, the display of prices and price promotions, advertising and consumer credit and provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject which practitioners will find invaluable. The work is organised to provide a practical treatment of trading standards law and is specifically designed to meet the requirements of those who regularly have to enforce, comply with or advise on consumer protection.
For ease of use each distinct branch of the law has a division to itself, containing all relevant statutes, regulations and European material together with informative practice notes and codes of practice. Appendices explaining the relevant provisions of Scottish Law are also included.
The service is also available on CD-ROM.
