Overview of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL)

Like many other countries, Australia has a comprehensive suite of consumer protection legislation. Consumer protection law is important for the efficient functioning of markets; it encourages consumers to shop with confidence, and enables businesses to compete fairly without rogue businesses being rewarded for using underhanded or misleading tactics. Module 6 provides an overview of the Australian Consumer Law. This is an overview module and so does not contain a quiz.
