Money laundering can only occur where there are criminal proceeds to be laundered, and these criminal proceeds often arise from terrible predicate crime such as human trafficking and slavery, drugs and arms dealing, and fraud.
Focus continues to grow on Anti-Money Laundering, both at local and national level, and attention is shifting to Designated Non-Financial Business and Professions (DNFBPs); those service providers who can act as enablers or gateways to the UK financial system.
If you offer legal services within scope of the UK Money Laundering Regulations, you are required by law to have policies and procedures in place which comply with those regulations. We know that the guidance and legislation can be a challenge to read, interpret and implement, so we are offering this specialist course to give MLROs and AML Managers at our member firms the opportunity to be taken through the fundamentals of compliance and grow in confidence in their approach.
