Listen to a recording of the event here.

Conscious consumerism, the act of making purchases to effect positive change in the world, is common in today’s society. What happens when a company makes promises about its products or itself in order to attract conscious consumers but fails to live up to those promises? Does the law allow for this kind of exploitation of consumers’ expectations and values? Can deceived consumers obtain adequate relief on their own or should the government step in to help protect consumers from companies that make and then break their ethical promises? If the government did step in, what could that look like? Join us for a free non-CLE program where experts will discuss the theoretical and practical dimensions of addressing this trending issue in consumer protection law.

This program is sponsored by the ABA Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division and co-sponsored by the ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice
