This is a series of books addressing the different aspects of banking law. It has been cited in numerous judgments dealing with banking issues. Quote from the preface to Vol. 1, written by the Honorable Judge Emeritus Y. Gross, former Vice President of the Tel Aviv-Yafo District Court: “The subject of banking laws, in general, and of the duties owed by banks, in particular, is of profound importance… Therefore, kudos are due to Advocates Gilad Narkis and Meirav Mor for their invaluable contribution in publishing this book. A first read of the book shows that it presents, clearly, fluently and in orderly manner, all the issues involved in this important and complex field, while providing a brief and comprehensive review of judicial rulings at all court levels, from the magistrate’s court through to the Supreme Court…”

The Fair Credit Law

By: Adv. Gilad Narkis and

Adv. Vered Scheidemann

The book describes at length the changes that occurred following the amendment of the Nonbank Loans Regulation Law, 5753-1993, which transformed it into a “Fair Credit Law,” and discusses the impact the amendment was expected to have on the nonbank credit market, on the banking sector and on borrowers. It also discusses the complex relationship between credit providers and banks, the background to the enactment of the amended law, and tools for its future interpretation in view of the positions presented during the pre-enactment deliberations of the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee.

The Banking Contract as a Relational Contract

By: Adv. Gilad Narkis

This book, which is based on the author’s LL.M. thesis, examines the bank-customer relationship through the prism of the relational-contract doctrine, while exploring the changes that have occurred in recent years in the relations between customer and bank. It makes an important contribution to those dealing with banking laws at several levels: one – imparting an understanding of the business, social and legal environment characterizing the complex relationship between customer and bank; two – enabling an analysis of the existing possibilities for intervention in the different types of banking contracts; three – providing an in-depth familiarization with the different types of banking contracts; and finally – clarifying the operational implications of defining the contract as a relational contract for the bank-customer relationship.
