CCLSWA presents guest lecture to UWA Consumer Law students

On the 13 and 20 October 2015, two of our CCLSWA solicitors, Gemma Mitchell and Curtis Ward, together with volunteer paralegal Nadia-Rose Agnello, presented to consumer law students at the University of Western Australia. Students learned about the service’s two main practice areas – the National Credit Code and Australian Consumer Law – and how to apply these legislative provisions in a real-life context.
Topics covered included:

  • Responsible lending;
  • Financial hardship;
  • Payday loans;
  • Unsolicited consumer agreements;
  • Consumer guarantees; and
  • Unfair contract terms

Many thanks to our three presenters for their hard work in preparing for the lectures, which were extremely well-received by the students.
