The SRA Risk Outlook 2018 highlights the risks and dangers to law firms of allowing client accounts to be used for money laundering purposes. The SRA has outlined a number of core issues of which solicitors need to be aware in order to ensure they remain compliant with money laundering regulations.
This course will highlight the on-going requirements for lawyers and their firms to be up to date with developments relating to and concerning how best to ensure effective anti-money laundering compliance.
The course trainer, Michael Cotter, is an expert Financial Services Lawyer who will provide insight and expertise.
This course is applicable to all solicitors. Each individual is responsibility for complying with the requirements of the SRA Handbook and the managers of each firm are responsible for the overall compliance of their individual firms.
Compliance Officers for Legal Practice (COLPs) and for Finance and Administration (COFAs) will find these courses of particular interest as their role is to champion compliance and good risk management within their firms. These courses may be integrated within existing processes to ensure that individuals are given sufficient information to comply with the SRA Handbook.
