Mohamed F. Ghazwi, Jehad Aljazi, Mash`al Jarrah


The consumer protection is one of the most important issues that need to be solved in the countries without special legal system to protect the consumer. This paper discussed how the Jordanian laws protect the consumer. Its major objective was to clarify the Jordanian Civil Law, Competition Law and NSCP on the issue of consumer protection. The paper indicated that Jordan legal system covers the issue of consumer protection in only few laws, which fall short of providing absolute protection to the consumer. The paper adopted a purely doctrinal nature of study that focuses on the primary and secondary sources. The paper concluded that Jordan legal system has insufficient rules to protect the consumer and as such the government needs to enact a special law named the consumer protection law, not unlike other developing countries such as, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia from which Jordan can adopt their Laws of Consumer Protection.
