An Introduction to European (EU) Financial Law

Dates:
  • Mon 13 Nov 2017 08.45 - 10.45
  Add to Calendar 2017-11-13 8:45 2017-11-13 10:45 Europe/Paris An Introduction to European (EU) Financial Law

This seminar aims to introduce students to European (EU) Financial Law, a branch of EU Economic Law which has dynamically developed over the last decade as a response to both the recent (2007-2009) international financial crisis and the (current) fiscal crisis in the eurozone.
It is structured in two equal Parts (five lectures each):
(1) The first, General Part starts with two lectures about the basis of EU Financial Law, namely financial regulation and supervision, with particular emphasis on the measures taken to preserve the stability of the banking system (the so-called “bank safety net”).
The subsequent two lectures focus on the definition and branches of EU Financial Law, its delimitation vis-à-vis EU Monetary Law, its historical evolution, as well as the impact of (public) International Financial Law on its shaping. This Part concludes with a lecture on the law-making process that is specific to the three main branches of EU Financial Law (namely EU Banking, Capital Markets and Insurance Law) under the so-called “Lamfalussy process” and a presentation of the legal acts which constitute the sources of these branches.
(2) The second, Specific Part is structured in two Sub-parts:
(a) Sub-part A, divided into three lectures, aims to highlight the main institutional and substantive aspects of EU Banking Law. While the first lecture is devoted to the presentation of the main pillars of the ��European Banking Union”, namely the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) and the Single Resolution Fund (SRF), the second gives an overview of the main provisions of EU banking law governing the micro- and macro-prudential regulation and the micro-prudential supervision of credit institutions.
