Ellinger's Modern Banking Law sets banking law against the background of general legal doctrines and banking regulation, discussing its operation in the context of its wider economic function.

The book examines the different types of banks and banking organizations operating in the United Kingdom, also making use of American, Canadian, New Zealand and Australian examples.

It provides analysis of the banker and customer relationship, explaining the different types of accounts available, the duties and the liabilities of banks, and the latest processes used in the clearance of cheques, plastic money and electronic money transfers. Issues relating to overdrafts, bank loans, credit agreements, and securities for bankers' advances are covered.

This is a significant book for undergraduates and postgraduates alike, as well as practitioners, providing comprehensive and up-to-date coverage.
