In this important update to her 2016 program, Norton Rose Fulbright's Kathleen Scott provides an introduction to the complex U.S. bank regulatory framework, covering the basics of banking law. Ms. Scott reviews the impact of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act on federal banking laws and examines federal anti-money laundering legislation and addresses hot-topic fintech issues (such as cryptocurrency).
