Fundamentals of Banking Law Course
Taught by members of the Banking Law Committee, Fundamentals of Banking Law (formerly Banking Law Basics) has been offered for over 20 years as a comprehensive overview of banking regulatory law by a highly experienced faculty of seasoned practitioners and former regulators who have also taught law school courses in banking regulation and related topics. The approach of this course, including choice of topics, interactive approach in the classroom, materials provided to the students, presence of the faculty through the entire program, and limited class size, is designed to come as close as possible on a short-term basis to replicating the experience of a law school class on banking regulation.
