The European Banking Union and the Role of Law

Elgar Financial Law series

Edited by Gianni Lo Schiavo, Lawyer, European Central Bank, Frankfurt, Germany

The European Banking Union and the Role of Law offers a comprehensive and unique examination of the European Banking Union’s (EBU) impact on existing legal disciplines and assesses the role of law in shaping the EBU framework.

‘The book edited by Gianni Lo Schiavo is a compelling piece providing a detailed legal analysis of the EBU building blocks. Inquiring the role of law in this domain is a very challenging task planned by the editor and the other fourteen authors of this book. The result is a fascinating and detailed account of the EBU development and challenges based on the analysis of political events, the emergence of new legal rules and procedures, and the actual European case-law.’
– Camila Villard Duran, La revue de la régulation

‘This is a timely collection of valuable insights into the legal basis and the functioning of the European Banking Union. Academic scholars, students and practitioners will benefit from a wide range of stimulating chapters covering all relevant aspects of the emerging practice – as well as areas for future reform.’
– Jens-Hinrich Binder, Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, Germany
