Podcast: Omri-Ben-Shahar on Consumer Contracts and Not Reading the Fine Print

By on May 4, 2019 in Commercial, Contracts

In a podcast on the website of the University of Chicago Law School, consumer contract experts Omri Ben-Shahar and Florencia Marotta-Wurgler discuss several types of consumer contracts, enforceability of terms, and the potential consequences of agreeing to these terms without reading the fine print.

“Consumer contracts are everywhere,” they write in the introduction. “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.”
