Contents: The National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) helps consumers, their advocates, and public policy makers use powerful and complex consumer laws on behalf of low-income and vulnerable Americans. The website is broken down into different sections for attorneys and non-professionals. For non-professionals, there are pages covering low-income and consumer justice initiatives, such as “Predatory Small Loans,” “Sustainable Homeownership,” and “Debt Collection Abuse.” These initiatives offer summaries of the major points of law, as well as pamphlets, brochures and other free publications to help consumers. For attorneys, there are sections offering detailed information regarding NCLC publications, as well as the capability to keyword-search through all NCLC manuals. The site also provides samples of the NCLC’s litigation and work product in areas such as “Auto-finance Discrimination” and “Private Child Support Collection Agencies.” In addition, there is a “Testimony and Comments” section, which contains statements from NCLC experts on issues such as consumer fraud, debt collection, and energy assistance programs.
