Don’t miss Barack Ferrazzano Financial Institutions Group partners Karol K. Sparks and John M. Geiringer, Regulatory Section Leader, as members of the faculty of Fundamentals of Banking Law, presented in partnership with Berkeley Law’s Executive Education Academies. This intensive 21/2 day executive education program is designed to familiarize participants with the basics of banking law, addressing key policies, concepts, and regulations surrounding bank regulation, financial markets, Dodd-Frank, and the rise of FinTech.

Structured as a workshop and lecture-based program rather than a seminar or conference, Fundamentals of Banking Law is taught by experienced practitioners, former bank regulators, and academics from leading law schools including Berkeley Law, Boston University, and NYU. Registered participants will gain free access to the Berkeley Law FinTech Legal Workshop, which will focus on how banking and finance laws apply to financial innovation. Eligible for 18 hours of MCLE credit, including 2.25 hours of legal ethics credit, Fundamentals of Banking Law proves beneficial to attorneys, compliance professionals, and risk managers working in financial services organizations.

Program Highlights:
Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • The structure and purpose of bank regulation;
  • Banks as chartered entities, and entities chartered by the federal government;
  • Prudential limitations, including affiliate, loans-to-one-borrower, and loans-to-insider rules;
  • Permitted investments and activities of banks, bank holding companies, and financial holding companies;
  • Insurance, securities and capital market activities, including derivative and swap activities, of banks and bank affiliates;
  • FDIC deposit insurance and bank failures;
