This course surveys the basic laws, regulations and policies that constitute international banking regulation in the context of providing legal representation and advice to financial institutions and bank regulators on a wide range of international banking law transactional, regulatory and policy matters. The course will examine the practical banking law implications of typical international banking transactions, such as international loan syndications and letter of credit, the legal responsibilities of banks in the facilitation of the international sales of goods and services and “ring fencing” protection of foreign deposits. The course will also examine the regulations of international activities of U.S. banking organizations, as well as U.S. regulation of foreign banking organizations and their affiliates. Further, the course will explore the wide ranging work of the Basle Committee on International Bank Supervision in the development of comprehensive global bank supervision standards and how these international standards are used in U.S. supervision of foreign banking establishments. The course will examine the causes of the recent global financial crisis, as well as government reaction to address the perceived weaknesses in the international financial regulatory system and potential solutions, and related work of the G 20. The course will also examine anti-terrorist and anti-money laundering laws.
