CPD Hours: 6hoursThis conference will focus on the importance of the key role played by solicitors in preventing money-laundering and financial crime - a role that is under ever-increasing scrutiny.
From the Azerbaijani Laundromat to McMafia, money-laundering has taken over the news and popular imagination. In the midst of all this, it is important to remember the key role played by solicitors in preventing money-laundering and financial crime – a role that is under ever-increasing scrutiny.
Our Anti-money laundering and financial crime conference will provide you with the information you need to meet regulatory requirements, but it will also place the role of the solicitor in broader context:
- Why is the role of the solicitor so important in preventing financial crime?
- What ethical dilemmas might this present?
In addition to this, on-going and future developments in financial crime will be discussed, with specific emphasis upon the issues presented by cybercrime. Finally, more specialised sessions for TCSP and conveyancing will address the specific risks and due diligence requirements for these sectors.
By attending this conference, you will:
- Discuss the latest anti-money laundering regulations for the legal profession
- Assess ongoing and future developments in financial crime
- Address the risks posed by cybercrime
- Review the legal profession’s requirements regarding due diligence, risk assessment and identifying beneficial ownership
