This paper examines the process of consumer law reform in the United Kingdom, with a particular focus on the evolution of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. It takes the view that the enactment of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 did not produce a satisfactory degree of consolidation, coherence and simplification. It explores the possibility of utilising a Restatement approach to make this area of law more accessible to consumer advisers and other users of consumer law.
