Symposium Themes

Banking regulation has gained prominence in public debate in recent years. As the impacts of the Great Recession continue to unfold, the structure of banking – particularly the interface between investment and commercial banking – has become the focus of enhanced legislative and regulatory energies. The aims of this symposium are to unpack and consider the potential implications of structural reform of banking with contributors offering perspectives which are sure to enrich and widen our understanding of this critically important legal, economic, and societal challenge.
