Regulation of Financial Institutions

Get Started

Getting Started

This guide is meant to help you find laws and information on regulating financial institutions; the goal is to provide useful (but not exhaustive) resources. 

Research requires analysis and synthesis of information, and no one resource will likely provide sufficient information or data on any given topic.

While conducting your research, you may want to explore: 

  • Laws and regulations governing financial institutions

  • Government and advocacy groups focusing on financial institutions

  • Practice and study aids, i.e., regulating financial institutions treatises

  • News sources, including blogs

  • Practical and scholarly articles

For many of these databases, you will need your Harvard University ID and PIN.  For others, you may need to register to gain access.  If you have any trouble accessing a database, please contact the library.
