About the course

Understanding the application of, and compliance with, the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Regulations (MLTF 2017) is a high priority for the BSB and for the profession. In addition, money laundering opportunities associated with the Covid-19 crisis are being heartlessly exploited by criminals increasing the risks for all self-employed barristers.

This practical and interactive anti-Money Laundering (AML) workshop is designed to de-mystify many of the ‘fear factors’ associated with the anti-money laundering regulations.

Adopting a practical and interactive approach, this workshop provides a clear and practical route-map through the MLTF 2017 requirements and includes presentations, practical case study examples, small group discussions and sharing of feedback.
