Finance - Banking Attorney Job Description

Of all legal positions, the one most focused on money transactions may be a banking attorney. Such attorneys work with banks and their regulations, bank officials, or with those who are working with a bank. Deposit and trust accounts, credit card agreements, electronic banking, and so forth are topics a banking attorney would work with. Such lawyers must work well with money, understand how finances and business are run, and, more importantly, how they operate under law. Therefore, banking attorneys must know much more about financial law, keeping abreast of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Truth in Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Protection Act (RESPA) the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Truth in Savings Act.
