Money laundering doesn’t have to be painful

Ongoing money laundering training is a real drag for solicitors. Regulation 21 of the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 requires that law firms “regularly provide training” on the topic.

Most firms comply with refresher training every 12-18 months that merely rehash the legislation and CDD procedures. This has led many solicitors to have a jaded attitude towards the training and they don’t take it seriously… until now.

Today VinciWorks released AML 360 — the perfect refresher course for users that claim to know it all. Instead of rehashing the legislation and CDD procedures, the course goes beyond the basics by engaging learners with the hot topics of the day.

The interactivity and rapid pace of the course creates an immersive experience in which users take an active role in the material rather than passively consuming information.

AML 360° is geared towards lawyers or support staff who have already undertaken money laundering training and understand the subject matter.

It delves into more detail and explores emerging areas such as bitcoin and the Fourth Money Laundering Directive.

The course covers eight subjects in less than 20 minutes with the following fast-paced modules:

  • Bitcoin: The dangers of virtual currency
  • How do criminals abuse law firms?
  • EU Fourth Directive: What’s new?
  • Red flags of money laundering
  • CDD: When to do it and what to do
  • Hollywood explains money laundering
  • Is your practice area at risk?
  • Source of wealth and funds

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
