Common Fallacies in Law-Related Consumer Research

Authors


Abstract

Researchers frequently publish studies inspired by laws or regulations, and often, the authors hope to be affecting public policy. In doing so, they draw upon and address aspects of law. Most of these scholars, however, have no special training in law, and all too often, the consequence is a manuscript that is replete with misstatements of law or faulty suppositions.
