Don’t miss Barack Ferrazzano Financial Institutions Group Senior Counsel, Karol K. Sparks, and Regulatory Section Leader, John M. Geiringer, as they participate as faculty members in Fundamentals of Banking Law (formerly Banking Law Basics), sponsored and hosted by Boston University School of Law.

Offered since 1998, this intensive 2-day program is designed to familiarize participants with the basics of bank regulatory law, with a particular focus on the critical policies, concepts, themes, and legal developments that have shaped over 150 years of banking law from the passage of the 1863 National Bank Act to the present.

Replicating the experience of a law school class on banking regulation, this condensed program delivers a comprehensive and interactive overview taught by a highly experienced faculty of seasoned practitioners and former regulators who also lecture on banking regulation and related topics at leading law schools. This program will be eligible for CLE credit, in the past providing up to 16 hours, including one hour of ethics.
