What is Banking Law?

The United States Banking sector is among the most highly regulated industries historically. This is due to the critical role banks play in operating payment systems and the allocation of credit to individuals and organizations. As such, the United States banking regulatory framework is complex and pervasive, governing both state and federal chartered institutions. Given the breadth and complexity of Banking Law there are several regulatory agencies supporting the legal system. The Federal Reserve establishes ongoing monetary policy and regulates at the federal level. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) regulates banks that are not part of the federal system, and, notably insures deposits and has receivership powers within the industry. Further there are several other agencies which provide a range of consumer protections and loss prevention. These include, among others:

  • Consumer transparency, fairness and equal opportunity
  • Risk reduction for clients
  • Mitigation against misuse, money laundering, and unfair loan practices
  • Terrorism and crime prevention
  • Promoting fair debt collection practices
  • Providing for customer disputes
  • Managing fair credit card arrangements
  • Ensure consumer confidence in the system

Not without moments, indeed eras of controversy, there is a long and evolving history of United States Banking Law that governs the complex industry of finance which benefits the great majority of American citizens.
