This handbook provides you with a thorough history of banking law and will guide you through today's system of financial regulation that is unlike anything else in the world. Banks are special entities, and lawyers representing banks need to understand their client's specific structure, importance of capital, and the new language that has formed. In addition, a banking law reference list is included at the end of the book with numerous acronyms and jargon to help you understand the new "Bank Speak."
