Consumer Protection



 



Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on consumer protection. In this course, we take an in-depth look at the multitudes of steps that have been taken to protect consumers from predatory practices of lenders, sellers and other participants in the marketplace. This is an intermediate-level course and some basic understanding of the world of law and regulation is recommended. There is also some overlap between this course and other courses on subjects to which these regulations apply, such as cyberlaw and mortgages.

Module 1 introduces consumer protection and discusses the seminal consumer protection law – the Truth in Lending Act. It also focuses on the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, which complemented the Civil Rights Acts by prohibiting discriminatory lending practices.
