Editorial Reviews

`Oxford has clearly brought together three of the most distinguished names in banking and financial services at this time...The Book itself remains a classic in terms of its content and presentation. The style is highly readable but professional, while the substantive content is authoritativeand informed. The text has also always managed to produce a considerably more informed and insightful description of banking markets and practice than is available in almost any other purely legal text...This is an impressive text. It also feels up-to-date and relevant which reflects its ModernBanking Law title. It is a credit to the three distinguished co-authors involved and a 'must have' for all lawyers, bankers and students or any other interested parties in this area.'G. A. Walker, Journal of international Banking Law and Regulation
