Consumer Protection Law Research Guide


Consumer protection law covers multiple interrelated subject areas intended to protect consumers including bankruptcy, commercial law, real estate, debtor-creditor and privacy law.  It is governed by both federal and state laws as well as a complex array of state and federal agencies and regulations.  This guide identifies major federal and West Virginia laws governing consumer protection.

This guide also identifies useful secondary sources including treatises, practice guides, and periodicals. Research using secondary sources is often a useful approach to understanding a legal topic, and a good way to begin your research on consumer protection.
