    Abstract

    Consumer Law in Scotland is the only book to examine consumer law from a Scottish perspective. It provides a practical and comprehensive guide to the law relating to consumer protection in Scotland. Consumer Law in Scotland discusses how purchasers of goods and services for private use are protected by means of criminal law, civil law and self-regulation. Account is taken of the organisations that protect or assist consumers, the impact of the E.C., and the way in which consumers of services provided by central and local government are protected. Also Consumer credit is explored, as are the ways in which the law seeks to control rogue traders and the various means by which consumer disputes can be settled. The second edition considers the effect of the Scottish Parliament and also the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations 1999, which replace the 1994 Regulations of the same name. Particularly useful for legal practitioners and students, trading standards officers, Citizens Advice Bureaux and local authorities.
