Restatement of the Law,

Consumer Contracts

This Restatement will largely follow the structure of the Restatement Second of Contracts, focusing on aspects of the law unique to consumer contracts and on regulatory techniques that are prominently applied in consumer protection law with examples from specific statutes and regulations. The project will be divided into three major parts: formation of contract, obligations in the contract, and enforcement and remedies.
