All of us are consumers. Most of us do not know our consumer rights. In this course, we will study consumer protection measures, which have been adopted in the UK due to the influence of EU law, i.e. consumer protection: against unfairness (misleading advertising; adhesion contracts); in popular consumer contracts (sale and travel sector); through performance standards (product safety and liability); and its enforcement (private; public; ADR; ODR). During seminars we will analyse the effectiveness of the adopted measures, partially through insights from behavioural economics. Therefore, this module is for students interested in interdisciplinary studies and already familiar with foundations of EU law and contract law.
