Research Interest: 
Consumer Protection Law In the Us And Europe

Ms. Augenhofer will examine how consumer protection law is implemented in various legal systems, including Germany. This area is currently subject to intense European and national legislation. She will compare different consumer protection regimes in the US and Europe and try to find out what can be learned from the different approaches and which parts could be most useful on a European level. By doing so she hopes to help find the most creative and balanced solution for legislation on a European level.
