This issue of the Akron Law Review is devoted to legal questions relating to the savings and loan industry. This particular project consists of an in-depth examination of the very important piece of legislation named in the title above. Although many of the provisions contained therein directly impact upon savings and loans, the authors have not limited themselves to that aspect, but have also addressed issues relating to all types of depository institutions. A general discussion of interest regulation is given first. This is followed by a title by title, section by section analysis of the major provisions of this far-reaching act.
