Course description

Money Laundering & The Bribery Act

Money Laundering and Bribery are two key areas for solicitors, requiring compliance with legislative and professional guidelines. Compliance with money laundering obligations has been described by the Law Society as ‘one of the greatest challenges for solicitors in the UK today’. The Secretary of State for Justice has stated that tackling the scourge of bribery should be ‘a priority for anyone who cares about the future of business’.

Solicitors providing legal services in relation to financial or property transactions perform a key role, acting as gatekeepers to the financial sector. These services can be exploited by criminals who seek to launder the proceeds of their unlawful activity. Solicitors need to be able to recognise high risk business activities and be aware of the anti-money laundering regime, as failure to comply with obligations can result in serious consequences for a firm or an individual.

Legal firms also need to ensure that bribery prevention policies and procedures are embedded and understood throughout the organisation.

This course provides solicitors with a clear understanding of money laundering and bribery, promoting an effective risk-based approach which allows them to exercise reasonable business and professional judgment with respect to clients, ensuring compliance with legal obligations.
