Nobody reads boilerplate contracts. Despite this, German law prescribes that consumers are given an opportunity to read these standardised clauses. This fundamental contradiction is based on the idea of protecting consumers through information. Peter McColgan's study shows that this concept is ineffective at protecting consumers, and beyond this, cannot be reconciled with the fundamental principles governing this area of law. Going forward, the author proposes alternatives to the status quo.
