Abstract: Member States of the European Union all grapple with the challenge of implementing consumer law into their legal order. For many civil law countries, the exercise has always proven rather more complex than it has historically been in England. Indeed, in countries where law is already codified, each new Directive requires careful analysis as to how it can be best integrated and accord with already established rules. In England, the practice has long been much simpler, the product of a mixture of specialised regulatory rules existing alongside the common law and some ‘copying and pasting’ of EU legislation. However, this resulted in consumer law becoming a strange area of law, not least because it is incredibly complex.
