Teaching Consumer Law in the New Economy

I'm currently in Houston, Texas, for a conference on Teaching Consumer Law in the New Economy organized by the Centre for Consumer Law of the University of Houston.

All throughout the morning session on the first day of this conference the presentations and the discussion focused on the influence of the financial crisis on consumer legislation. The speakers mentioned consumer credit and bankruptcy laws of not only US but also UK, Australia and Vietnam. It's interesting to consider how to make these matters more approachable in order to convey these issues to law students (as well as to consumers).
