New: consumer law treatises online

The Barco Law Library owns the 20 print treatises published by the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC). We now have access, via law school IP range, to the “companion websites” of these treatises. These books are practical guides that can be used by laypeople or attorneys in dealing with a wide range of consumer law issues. They include lots of useful forms and sample documents for pleadings. Check them out at . To get into the content, use the links in the lefthand menu to go to the title you want, like “Access to Utility Service”. The next page will let you search the content of that title. To see all the contents, click on the “Contents” tab at the top of the page.
 The books are divided into 4 libraries:
 Debtor Rights Library: •Consumer Bankruptcy Law and Practice •Fair Debt Collection •Foreclosures •Repossessions •Student Loan Law •Access to Utility Service
 Credit and Banking Library: •Truth in Lending •Fair Credit Reporting •Mortgage Lending •Consumer Credit Regulation •Consumer Banking and Payments Law •Credit Discrimination
Consumer Litigation Library: •Collection Actions •Consumer Class Actions •Consumer Law Pleadings •Consumer Arbitration Agreements
Deception and Warranties Library: •Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices •Federal Deception Law •Automobile Fraud •Consumer Warranty Law
You can also find these resources by using PittCat, which includes a master record (search for title: “Consumer Law Manuals”) with all the titles and website info.
