This subject provides students with an understanding of the regulation of banking institutions in Australia and concentrates on the relationship 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. Consideration is also given to the products and services commonly offered by banks.

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