This review is contained in two parts, the second of which will appear in the next issue of LFMR. In it, I offer a view on the current financial crisis, as well as my personal selection from the developments in English law during 2008 (principally drawn from case-law) that I believe will be of interest to those who practise in the fields of international finance and banking. In a couple of instances, I have also included items from the end of 2007. In this part, I will commence with some reflections engendered by the continuing crisis in the financial markets. I will then move on to deal with some of the developments that are relevant to banking and finance law. In the next issue of the journal, I will look at developments in the fields of conflict of laws, insolvency and arbitration.
