Last year's Survey reported that the field of commercial law was expanding rapidly and that the courts were receptive to innovative solutions to protect consumers from the rigors of the traditional commercial-law concepts. This year has been mixed. Some courts have pushed "consumerism" to new lengths, while other have retraced their steps from the extremes of the past few years and returned to more traditional commercial law concepts. This article discusses some of the more important developments in the peripheral area of Truth-in-Lending as well as report the cases and statutes for the 1975-76 year within the traditional realm of commercial law.
