Anti-money laundering 2020


Anti-money laundering remains a priority for solicitors and the SRA. Law firms are still an attractive target for criminals eager to launder their profits. The overwhelming majority of solicitors want to do the right thing. But weak procedures, poor monitoring and undertrained staff can open the door for criminals. Our AML training will bring you right up to date on recent guidance from the SRA. It will also help with spotting the red flags, reporting your suspicions, and keeping you and your firm safe.



As a result of attending the course, you will:

  • be equipped to spot ‘red flags’
  • know what to report and how to report it
  • keep better evidence of your thinking and decision-making
