Money laundering: minimising the risks with CPD

30 April 2013
A recent practice note issued by The Law Society highlighted the tension between the confidential role played by a solicitor acting on behalf of a business client, and his or her legal obligations regarding money laundering, among other issues.

Money laundering is a very real threat and awareness of the risks a solicitor may be taking is crucial to protecting a law firm. Continuing professional development (CPD) training delivered by an accredited training provider is a way of minimising these risks as well as improving overall good practice.

LBS Legal – experienced and SRA accredited training providers – runs an anti-money laundering CPD course aimed at empowering solicitors with the knowledge and tools they need in order to comply with regulation.

Our CPD courses are delivered at the location, date and time of your choice. The training is always face-to-face and can take a variety of forms, which we can discuss with you beforehand. They include lectures, seminars, workshops and one-to-one coaching, all designed to facilitate effective learning.

These anti-money laundering CPD courses are engaging, packed full of information and provide expert insight into the traps legal practitioners can fall into when their services are targeted by criminals.

To date our CPD team has trained more than 3,000 solicitors in a range of subjects, of whom 96% rated our courses as "excellent" or "good". As well as anti-money laundering, topics include mortgage fraud, anti-bribery and corruption, risk management and data protection. For a complete list see our CPD Training section.
