Course Description
The course serves as an introduction to the law governing Federal regulation of banks and their banking and nonbanking affiliates. The course will cover the basic statutes governing the chartering of national banks, the Federal Reserve system, deposit insurance, and depository institution holding companies, as well as the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 and related capital, liquidity and "prudential" regulation. Emphasis is placed on the rules governing the activities permissible for different kinds of depository institutions, and companies affiliated with depository institutions, prudential regulations to protect the safety and soundness of institutions, and capital requirements imposed on institutions by Federal law and by the Basel Committee on Bank Supervision. Special emphasis will be placed on issues arising from the current "Covid-19" crisis, and the responses of Congress and of the Federal Reserve System to the crisis, including the various lending or asset acquisition "facilities" established by the Federal Reserve system.
