This Bisel Lawsource® is designed to be a convenient source for the laws which most impact consumers. Dozens of Pennsylvania statutes, Pennsylvania Code provisions, federal statutes and federal regulations have been selected for publication. For instance, in one convenient location, the reader will find the full text of such important pieces of legislation as the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law, the Plain Language Consumer Contract Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Unfair Insurance Practices Act, the Automobile Lemon Law, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951, and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. In addition to numerous other important state and federal statutes, the reader will also find regulations addressing such areas as deceptive advertising, claims settlement practices, product labeling, real estate transfers, automotive industry practices, and telephone and utility services.

This publication will prove to be a valuable resource to consumers, businesses, attorneys, judges, and all other individuals who may have reason to research consumer issues, whether on a frequent, occasional, or even one-time basis. In consideration of the goal of keeping the publication to a broad-based, practical, single-volume guide, it must be remembered that no one topic has been covered so comprehensively as to preclude the applicability of additional law. Nonetheless, for those who frequently consult the provisions of law found in the publication, the publication will serve as a handy and concise desk reference. For others, it will serve as a comprehensive, hands-on starting point for the research of the most common consumer issues.
