About the Center

The Center for Banking Law
                                      Founder and Director:  Prof. Ruth Plato-Shinar
The goal of the Center for Banking Law of Netanya Academic College, is to analyze, develop, and help promote understanding of legal aspects of the banking world.
The field of banking is relevant to the entire public. Since banking services are a necessity of life for both the private sector as well as the business sector, banking law is a very important field in legal practice. Everyone practicing law encounters banking issues and consequently must be familiar with banking law, and as a result courts are backlogged with legal suits concerning a multitude of banking issues.
While the idea of an academic banking center is not new, the novelty of the Center for Banking Law of Netanya Academic College is that it is an academic banking center that deals with legal aspects in the field of banking. It deals with practical aspects of banking law, working in cooperation with the scientific/academic community, banking and financial institutions and banking regulators to improve the relations among them and create connections that enhance economic development and consumer protection. The Center is a forum where professionals and academics in the field discuss current legal banking problems and offer practical solutions to them.
The goals of the Center for Banking Law are:
* Detecting and developing issues that deserve public attention.
* Encouraging and holding academic activities and conferences.
* Conducting discussions regarding current issues and publishing the proceedings of discussions for 
     the use of banking professionals and other interested people.
* Preparing legislative bills.
* Inspiring and training law students, as future lawyers, to engage in legal banking work.
* Lecturing in institutions for advanced legal studies and other forums.
* Promoting research in banking law.
* Publishing articles in legal journals such as the Netanya Academic College Law Review.
