The Centre for Banking Law is a research centre of the University of Johannesburg and the successor of the RAU Research Unit for Banking Law, which was founded in the 1990s. The Centre has developed into a leading research centre in South Africa in the fields of banking and finance law. The research produced by the Centre is often cited authoritatively by courts and scholars alike, and also informs the curriculum of LLB and LLM banking law courses across many universities in South Africa. The Centre’s success in this regard can be ascribed to the strategic relationships it has cultivated with key industry role players, including the International Chamber of Commerce, the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Institute of International Banking Law and Practice (USA), and the major law firms and commercial banks in South Africa.
