Competition and Consumer Law

Competition and Consumer Law/Act (tailored)

This half-day course assists businesses to:

  • identify conduct which is potentially anti-competitive, misleading, deceptive or unconscionable; and
  • implement strategies to avoid contravention of the Competition and Consumer Act.

The essential features of misleading and deceptive conduct, anti-competitive and unconscionable conduct are explained through presentation, group discussions, workshops and simulated tasks.
