LAW 2919 - Comparative Consumer and Products Liability Law


The course explores consumer protection and product liability laws from a comparative and, where relevant, an international perspective. The approach is primarily transactional. The class considers cases of deception, fraud and injury that arise when consumer products and services are purchased. We study how similar problems are handled differently by laws and administrative rules in the United States and selected countries of the European Union. The response of U.S. agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, and rules provided by the common law and Uniform Commercial Code, are compared to European analogs, including the rulings of pan-European courts and administrative tribunals. Topics covered include the comparative study of remedies available under warranty and contract laws; the study of product disclosure and labeling requirement; the treatment of automotive injury claims; legislative actions affecting food safety and public health; antifraud and privacy protections for electronics commerce; and challenges to deficiencies in the delivery of healthcare.
