These two questions in turn depend on a number of subsidiary questions, including how banks are governed and regulated, the relationship between banks and their customers and the impact of law and legal institutions. This subject provides students with insights into the legal frameworks in selected Asian jurisdictions governing banking regulation and insolvency and the chief forms of debt recovery mechanisms.
