Webcast - Australian Consumer Law 2021

Overview

The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) is now almost ten years old but the operation of many of its provisions and their relevance to personal injury claims, particularly in the context of the Civil Liability Act (CLA), is yet to be determined by Queensland courts. This seminar is designed to give practitioners a working knowledge of the operation of the ACL, how it can be relied upon in a claim for damages for personal injury, relevant time limits, and how it interacts with the CLA.
