Students who took Banking & Financial Institutions: U.S. Regulation, LAW-857, in Spring 2017 may not take this course. This is the same course but the course number has been updated.


This course surveys the basic laws, regulations and policies that constitute U.S. banking regulation. In the context of the recent international financial crisis, the course will also examine government reaction to address the perceived weaknesses in the U.S. financial regulatory system, as well as the impact of the landmark Dodd-Frank Act financial reform legislation.
