"Consumer Law: The area of law dealing with consumer transactions -- that is, a person's obtaining credit, goods, real property, or services for personal, family or household purposes."

Black's Law Dictionary, 9th ed.


Welcome to the LibGuide for Consumer Law. As is usual in working in just about any practice area, it is beneficial to begin your work by finding a good secondary source.  That is why the second tab of this Guide contains the resources available to you here at the Law School that we are sure you will find useful. This Guide also gathers primary sources, as well as websites, that will be relevant.

If you have questions, or can't find something you need, we are available to work with you - so come by or call the Reference Desk (413-782-1458), email us, or chat using the box to the right.

Good Luck!


From the Federal Trade Commission
