Consumer Protection Act [Seminar]

Learn how to apply the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) to protect your clients and your firm and provide innovative new remedies for clients

This year we are talking very practically about remedies for consumers and how to enforce them in court; about drafting contracts; and about using the media. We will also look at the Consumer Tribunal, the various ombudsmen and at the successes and challenges of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA). From a supplier’s perspective, we will focus on the high risk areas and how your client (and your firm) can protect their interests, while changing their consumers into allies. The seminar will also cover plain language, the motor industry, defects in immovable property, timeshare, disclaimers, and much more.


TRUDIE BROEKMANN has been involved with the CPA since it was a Bill and she is highly fascinated by the impact it has on almost every area of law. She has her own firm in Cape Town, Trudie Broekmann Attorneys and previously  worked at Broekmanns Attorneys, Mallinicks Inc, Webber Wentzel and Gunstons Attorneys, and as in-house counsel for Irvin & Johnson Ltd. Ms Broekmann volunteers for a non-governmental organisation which uses the Constitution  to advance justice for ordinary South Africans.
