  • Overview

    This course covers the principal legal instruments, relationships and dealings commonly arising in the day to day business of a banker. Topics are canvassed at a depth appropriate to a person needing to be an accomplished and competent actor within a legal environment, yet not claiming the expertise of a legal professional. Domestic banking topics focus on Fiji law with reference to the law of other South Pacific jurisdictions for comparative purposes where library facilities permit. Throughout the course emphasis is placed upon standard form banking documentation in use locally.
