Coming to Terms with Consumer Contracts

Consumer contracts are everywhere. The number of contracts you enter into today may surprise you. Most of the contracts you enter into no longer involve a pen and paper. Purchasing a morning coffee, visiting a website, or scheduling a delivery are just a few daily transactions that more often than not include contract terms.

In this episode of Reasonably Speaking, consumer contract experts Omri Ben-Shahar (Chicago Law) and Florencia Marotta-Wurgler (NYU Law) discuss several types of consumer contracts, enforceability of terms, and the potential consequences of agreeing to these terms without reading the fine print.
