‘Consumer Protection Litigation’ can be done by anyone and everyone having a sound knowledge of the issues. The consumer protection law protects the consumers from various problems including the defects in goods and commodities and deficiency in services. One of the legislative intents of the introduction of this law was to keep the lawyers away and not to overburden the courts because of petty issues. The consumer protection regimes enable the victims of consumer frauds and other problems to get speedy justice from the consumer forums established at various places. The course teaches various ways to enforce the consumer rights including the drafting of legal notices and applications to consumer forums.
WHY IS THE COURSE IMPORTANT?
