It includes an analysis of the recent amendments to the unconscionable conduct provisions introduced by the Competition and Consumer Legislation Amendment Act 2011 (Cth). The regime is positioned within the existing judicial framework and the commentary includes analysis of recent case law decided under the scheme since its commencement, including the High Court decision in Kakavas v Crown Melbourne Ltd  HCA 25. Consumer Protection Law in Australia is an invaluable guide for legal practitioners, academics and students.
