... an ambitious, thoroughly researched publication that distils the complex regulatory environment for Irish consumer and SME lending into a single, accessible reference work. That Ms. Beausang achieves this in such a comprehensive yet accessible manner is demonstrative of the vast research and insight devoted to this excellent and timely book. The book fills a gap in the Irish market for a modern and comprehensive consideration of this area of law …truly peerless and will reward anyone that invests time in reading it.
Eoin O'Connor, Irish Compliance Quarterly, Autumn 2022
…. excellent …. we are fortunate that, in Consumer and SME Credit Law, Ms Beausang has provided us with a substantial ball of string to help us find our way around the labyrinth: this is a weighty tome extending to 2,362 pages. It is replete with useful information and analysis, especially to explain the often-complex interrelationships between the legislative and regulatory provisions relevant to consumer and SME credit …There is no near-term prospect of simplification of the law in this area but Ms Beausang's work certainly makes a valuable contribution to understanding its intricacies.
Josh Hogan, Hibernian Law Journal, Vol 21, 2022
This dedicated consumer protection and SME credit-law text is an excellent resource, and is a welcome addition to banking-law publications … an ideal resource for practitioners advising consumers and SME-sector clients.
Michelle McLoughlin, Law Society Gazette, July 2022
“[A] wonderful new book … [which] makes a real and valuable contribution to the Irish literature in the depth of research brought to every area within the book's scope …. this text will be a landmark in its field for years to come.”
Noel McGrath, University College Dublin, The Irish Jurist Vol LXVII, 2022
"Consumer and SME Credit Law …. will, I expect, quickly become an essential purchase for the many lawyers whose practices touch on the issue of consumer/SME credit law. For the busy judge dealing with summary debt applications, it will doubtless become a definitive guide on the applicable law, offering a trustworthy work on which to ground judgment …. a remarkable work …. I have no doubt that it will influence many judges in their decision-making (and many lawyers in the advice they tender) in the years ahead."
Mr Justice Max Barrett, Irish Judicial Studies Journal Vol 6(2)
"These issues and much, much else besides have been analysed with great care and sophistication by Ms Beausang. One can only pay tribute to the enormous scholarship and erudition displayed in this book."
