Description

This course deals with the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices - Consumer Protection Act (DTPA), which is the primary consumer protection statute in Texas. We will also examine statutory and common law warranties and the interplay between the DTPA and other relevant consumer protection statutes. Two class periods will be spent on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (the primary federal statute protecting consumers from abusive collection practices) and the Texas Debt Collection Act.
