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 Irish Centre for European Law, 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), the Charter of Fundamental Rights, recent case law and legislation can assist borrowers in debt related proceeding. 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.
