This subject provides students with an understanding of the regulation of banking institutions in Australia following deregulation and concentrates on relations between banking institutions and their customers. Students explore a historical introduction to the law relating to banking and to relevant principles; the regulatory framework within which banking institutions operate; and the activities of banking institutions, including consumer, electronic and corporate banking, and negotiable instruments. Consideration is also given to the wide range of services currently offered by a number of institutions, including trading banks.

Students completing this subject develop a working understanding of the key areas of banking law nationally that enables them to critically analyse current issues in Australian banking. Students also contribute to an ongoing discussion of current developments in banking law and, building on their collaborative analyses of banking law, evaluate developments in the industry. Students' learning in this subject emphasises the collaborative context within which banking law operates.
