Module summaryThis module will provide students with an insight into the way in which banks operate and at the same time will enable students to gain an understanding of the role of the legal process in the regulation of banks, both on a national and an international basis. Banking is very much an international industry and the course will consider the theoretical basis as well as the practical issues involved in the prevention and resolution of banking crises. The course covers the following topics: banking crises and the causes of bank failure; the regulation of banks; the role of the central bank and/ banking regulator; the protection of bank depositors; international efforts including the EU and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision; the prevention and control of money laundering.
On completion of this module, students should be able to:
- critically assess the law in this area;
- analyse the issues from both a theoretical and a practical perspective.
Students should have an understanding of the contemporary issues and problems in the regulation of the international banking sector and be able to discuss how these issues and problems are being addressed. In addition students should be able to identify matters that warrant reform and to be able to discuss the kinds of reforms needed.
