The all-new revised fourth edition of Banking Law in the United States positions the text to address three challenges — the need to maintain an historic record and statement of existing law, the need to document changes made to existing law and to report the deployment, implementation and interpretation of new laws. Just as new laws in 1989, 1990 and 1991 had significant impact on banking, so new laws, adopted in rapid succession in 2008, 2009 and 2010, have altered the legal landscape in which banks and other financial institutions operate. The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, adopted in 2010, set the stage not only for new agencies, new regulatory authorities and new market restrictions, but also for extensive interpretive regulation and judicial interpretations implementing such changes. As a result, the all new 4th edition positions Banking Law in the United States to accommodate legal and market changes and whatever secondary, reactive responses occur in the law and the environment in which it operates. This new edition continues to meet the needs of practitioners, courts, legislators and regulators and those interested in better under­standing the breadth and diversity and dynamic nature of banking law in the United States.
