About this course

Lawyers are both victims and perpetrators of money laundering schemes.

They are a risk to themselves and the people they deal with. 

This course reviews everything you need to know if you are a lawyer or if you deal with lawyers. 

The course focuses on strategic matters that affect all lawyers in all jurisdictions and those who deal with them both domestically and internationally. 

With reference to England and Wales, the USA, Australia and others, the course demonstrates the wide variations of both definitions of relevant lawyers and the obligations placed upon them.

In addition, it raises questions as to the regulatory regimes in place, the approaches of supra-national bodies and draws attention to inconsistency in laws and regulations and the gaps into which lawyers can inadvertently fall and drag their banks and others who deal with them.

This course is for legal professionals, providers of financial services to legal professionals, for regulators and those who prosecute lawyers.
