We often get questions asking about consumer protection, and our website has multiple resources to assist with your research.
The best place to find answers to straightfoward issues is on our Frequently Asked Question consumer protection page that includes questions regarding topics such as contracts, gift cards, refunds, and debt collection.
Also see our Consumer Protection legal research guide. This guide highlights useful state and federal laws, e-books, articles, and other digital resources that you can download from home (some of which require a library account) such as:
- Know your rights!, by Richard Alderman, highlights many consumer issues.
- Consumer Protection from the Texas Attorney General provides information on consumer protection and a place to make consumer complaints.
- Commonly Asked Questions from Consumer Financial Protection Bureau provides answers to frequently asked questions regarding student loans, mortgages, credit cards, credit reports, prepaid cards, auto loans, bank accounts, and debt collection.
