Practical insights into trade practices and consumer law
About the Journal
The Australian Journal of Competition and Consumer Law (formerly the Trade Practices Law Journal) (ISSN: 1838-9260) provides an exceptional arena for the exchange of ideas and information on topical issues of trade practices law and practice. Insightful articles, editorials and case notes, succinct reports discussing and analysing legislative and judicial developments, as well as commentaries pertaining to the ACCC, the Australian Competition Tribunal and the National Competition Council, are some of the inclusions that make this innovative journal unique. While concentrating on Australian law, the journal also contains an international perspective through the inclusion of overseas reports.
Written with an overall practical focus, the Journal is an impressive publication which practitioners in this area of the law cannot afford to be without.
