Part Two analyses the banker and customer relationship, explaining the different types of accounts available, the duties and trustee liability of banks, and the latest processes used in the clearance of cheques and money transfers. Part Three then discusses issues relating to overdrafts, bank loans, credit agreements, securities, and mortgages. Fully updated and revised to take into account the considerable changes in banking law, regulation, and practice that have taken place in recent years, this edition contains substantial new material on the new regulatory regime, electronic banking and the implications of electronic money transfers, lender liability (including liability for environmental damage), recovery of mistaken payments, syndicated lending, and on tracing and banker liability as constructive trustee.

The Law Of Security And Title Based Financing

Personal property security is an important subject in commercial practice, as it is the key to much of the law of banking and sale. This second edition has been fully updated and expanded to cover all important issues and changes within this highly complex area of law. It explains traditional methods of securing debts (such as mortgages, charges, and pledges) on property other than land, describing how these are created, how they must be registered (or otherwise 'perfected') if they are to be valid, the rights and duties of the parties, and how the security is enforced if the debt is not paid. The new edition includes an expanded section on priorities in which it explains how 'priority' disputes between competing interests over the same property are resolved. In addition the book covers the law governing other transactions that perform a similar economic function (such as finance leases, retention of title clauses, and sales of a company's book debts). These are not currently treated by the law as security and are therefore subject to different rules on perfection, priority, and enforcement. There is much expansion of the discussion relating to enforcement including the issue of 'right of use' following Lehman, more analysis on administration and all forms of non-possessory security and quasi-security, and a new chapter on enforcement of security addressing the right of appropriation under FC/FCAR and the Cukurova case. The conflict of laws section includes developments under the Rome I Regulation affecting assignment issues, the UNIDROIT Convention 2009 in relation to tiered holdings and the Cape Town Convention's extensions made to coverage of asset-backed security over equipment. It also addresses the changes brought about by the abolition of Slavenburg registration. This edition contains relevant points from the Banking Act 2009 concerning its impact on security, such as the power to protect certain interests on a transfer of property, and also considers amendments regarding liquidators' expenses under the Insolvency Rules. The authors additionally deal with the role of step-in rights and why they are part of the statutory definition of project finance in the Enterprise Act. Previously published as The Law of Personal Property Security, this new edition brings together all of the law on this complex area, providing guidance in the context of commercial practice, especially with increased coverage of conflict of laws, priority, insolvency, and enforcement.

Submitted Assignment from the year 2015 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 65.00, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (CEFIMS), course: Financial Law, language: English, abstract: Before the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, law was a necessary tool for financial markets. English financial law represents “the entire body of legal rules that govern and regulate financial markets, financial assets and financial transactions under the law of England and Wales”. It is classified as “a sub-species of English commercial law, which is heavily influenced by English common law”. According to Ellinger et al., « in order to safeguard the stability of the banking system, a degree of regulation and supervision needs to be imposed on banks themselves ». In this context, the United Kingdom passed the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, which authorized the Financial Services Authorities to become « a super-regulator , having responsibility for the regulation and supervision of the whole financial services sector ». However, this regulatory system was not suited for adressing the difficulties the banks were going into during the global financial crisis of 2008-2009. After the crisis, law and regulation's role shifted to provide more protection for financial stability and for the prevention of any misconducts. The Banking Act 2009 was going to fill the gap in « dealing with pre-insolvency 'stabilization' and with banking insolvency and administration ». And a year later, the Financial Services Act 2010 was given the role of « strengthening the powers of the FSA and giving it a 'financial stability' objective. In this paper, we are going to critically discuss the different views on the role of law and finance before and after the financial crises areas.

The Gulf War 1990 91 In International And English Law

There is no doubt that international law was of major importance during the Gulf conflict of 1990-91. Military and other actions were repeatedly justified through reference to international law, and disputes about interpretation were frequent. This book provides a definitive legal analysis of the conflict, with reference both to international and to English law. Some have been tempted to argue that international law is an ineffective means of controlling the activities of a state and its armed forces from the fact that there were no war crimes trials of the leaders of Iraq, or of any other state. International law does, however, provide a set of norms either (a) agreed to by individual states through the ratification of, or accession to, a treaty, or (b) which apply to all states by the operation of customary international law and other secondary sources. This book determines these norms in order to judge the manner in which individual states recognized the binding nature of them in the conduct of their operations. The contributors include lawyers from each of the three British armed services.
