Description

This course is an introduction to the law of financial institutions against the backdrop of the global financial crisis of 2007-2009. Most of the material will focus on banks. We will situate U.S. bank regulation in the broader context of regulating financial institutions, including investment funds, broker-dealers, and insurance firms, and in the context of other national, regional and international approaches to regulating finance.
In addition to covering U.S. banking law basics – safety and soundness, activities and affiliation restrictions, geographic limits, deposit insurance and supervision – we will consider issues in central banking, resolving complex financial conglomerates, cross-border regulatory cooperation, institutional design for regulating finance, and financial crisis response.
