The end of the Irish lending boom has left many individuals and families with unsustainable levels of personal debt.  This seminar, co-organised by the ICEL, the Open Society Justice Initiative, the Centre for Housing Law, Rights and Policy (CHLRP) at the School of Law, NUI Galway, will examine how the Unfair Contract Terms in Consumer Contracts Directive (UCTD) and the Charter of Fundamental Rights might assist borrowers in debt related proceedings.  Based on the UCTD and the Charter, the CJEU has been developing the law in this area, which can be applied by the Irish courts.

This event will take place on 28 November 2019 from 5.30 pm until 7.30 pm at Galway Court House.
