Banking Law

Research guide for banking law

Historical Timeline


Banks are regulated by both federal and state statutory and administrative law. Since banks and banking activities are often subject to more than one regulatory body, research on banking law can be complicated.  Additionally, financial crisis and bank failure often prompt new legislation.  This guide will provide you with a brief overview of how to research this area of law at the University of Connecticut Law School Library. Please start with the library’s online catalog to locate a specific item, or ask a reference librarian for help with in-depth research.
