Course Overview

Combating Money Laundering is an essential part of any law practice, with severe criminal and regulatory sanctions for failing to do your part. This essential one hour webinar succinctly sets out the key requirements, how those should work in practice, and highlights the latest warning signs. Divided into easily digestible 20 minute chunks, this webinar is an ideal refresher for busy practitioners, or starting point for new staff members. Accompanying materials include notes, exercises to discuss with your team members, and a quiz to test your knowledge and demonstrate your competence.

Please note this course was recorded in summer 2016 and so does not cover the Criminal Finance Bill currently passing through Parliament, however it covers the AML regime currently in operation, and which is likely to remain for some time.

Viewers may also wish to view the new Money Laundering Regulations 2017 webinar which is now available.
