Banking Law Fundamentals
The Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Banking Law Fundamentals. This program will provide a comprehensive, 2-1/2 day introduction to banking law for attorneys, consultants, regulators, and bank professionals who intend to work in the field. It is also a refresher course for experienced banking law practitioners whose practice has not provided an opportunity for the broad exposure that this course offers. The program will also delve into how the Dodd-Frank Act, the most significant piece of banking legislation since the Great Depression, affects the regulation and activities of banking organizations, and will cover a number of Dodd-Frank-related topics including regulation of systemically important financial institutions, capital requirements, mortgage- and other asset-backed securitizations, and swaps, derivatives, and hedging. Up to 18 hours of CLE will be available for this program and will include a 90-minute segment on ethical considerations in the representation of banking organizations.
