The North Carolina Banking Institute Journal furthers academic discourse in banking law. The journal publishes student-edited pieces prepared for the annual Banking Institute along with top-quality, student-written and edited notes and comments on cutting-edge banking law issues. The journal is published in conjunction with an annual continuing legal education program (sponsored by the School of Law) on banking law which attracts nationally prominent speakers. The journal helps to bridge the gap between the academic realm and practitioners of banking law and the gap between students and members of the profession. All segments of the banking community come together to share ideas, experiences, and explore emerging issues and dilemmas at the institute and in the pages of the Banking Institute journal.
