(Well, this is really not the way to do that. But it is and compelling and useful course. Read on!)

This one-unit course offers LL.M. students the opportunity to explore the different methods used by countries around the world to address issues of consumer rights and economic justice. Participants in the course will determine which particular aspects of Consumer Law to explore “ past years' subjects have included deceptive advertising, aggregate litigation (class actions), regulation of pharmaceuticals, credit reporting, and small-dollar lending, among others.

Class requirements: The class will meet 5 times. For each meeting, students will research and present their country's legal regime addressing that week's topic, with accompanying visual aids and examples. (Responsibility for provision of snacks rotates around the globe.) That's it.
