The Report

Coming Winter 2019

America’s consumer protection laws have failed to keep up with dramatic changes in the American marketplace over the preceding three decades. The product of an eighteen-month investigation, the #REPRESENT Project has prepared a comprehensive model consumer protection law, The Represent Act. An accompanying report explains the flaws in the present consumer protection regime and how the proposed law provides a solution to those problems.

The report tracks the structure of the model law and provides background on and explanations of the problems each provision of The Represent Act is intended to address, specifically focusing on prohibited practices and enhanced consumer remedies.
