» Banking Law:
Banking law is the branch of law related to money and financial institutions and payment systems.

Much of banking law deals with various forms of payment, including checks, credit cards, debit transactions, letters and lines of credit, and wire transfers. These payment systems present consumers and banks with a myriad of issues, such as disputes as to payment, fraud, warranties, and errors and omissions.

Another area of banking law deals with negotiable instruments. Negotiable instruments are financial documents, such as promissory notes, that provide cash liquidity to the borrower. Legal issues associated with negotiable instruments include transfers of the document and liability for payment.

Yet another area of banking law involves various regulatory and compliance issues. Banks are heavily regulated. Both the federal and state governments regulate banks and various aspects of lending. Bank regulatory laws include various federal bank statutes to Federal Reserve Board Regulations. Bank regulation is playing an increasingly important role as the markets deal with the lack of enforcement of bank lending rules in the past ten years.
