Introduction to Banking Law Research
- Banking law is regulated by both state and federal law. To determine which laws apply to a particular financial institution, determine whether the institution was chartered by state or federal law, and whether the institution is a commercial bank or thrift.
- All banks are subject to the commercial code and other laws of the state in which they do business, as well as many federal laws dealing with consumer protection, bankruptcy, etc.
- A state chartered institution can choose to be a member of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Home Loan Bank System or to be insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and become subject to additional federal regulations.
