Australian Competition and Consumer Law Reporter
First published almost 30 years ago under the name Australian Trade Practices Reporter, this service was re-badged in January 2011 as Australian Competition and Consumer Law Reporter.
This reporter provides a practical and comprehensive explanation of the new competition and consumer law and its implications for business and consumers, together with the full text of all the appropriate legislation, and a specialised case reporting service.
- Written by respected authors and consultants in conjunction with editors who are qualified lawyers - you can be confident that the content is accurate and relevant, thus reducing your exposure to risk
- Print subscribers get an annual bound volume of cases - the premium portable casebook is ideal for taking to court and it’s a classic addition to any lawyer’s library
- Summary newsletter and/or Tracker is provided with each update - for time-poor practitioners this gives you a snapshot of the key developments, outlines of significant cases and major points detailed in the update. Tracker gives immediate and up to date developments in competition and consumer law
- Grouped by topic areas rather than following the Act itself - saving valuable time and money as it helps you quickly find the most relevant information to the matter at hand
- Reports key judgments from the courts and Australian Competition Tribunal - you benefit from having a comprehensive service with all relevant information in the one place
