European Conference on EU AML/CFT and Legal Professions
October 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
LIGHT aims to increase the competency of lawyers and notaries in AML/CFT, therefore strengthening their role in the implementation of AML/CFT and ensuring the effectiveness of AML/CFT policy. The project stems from the 2019 Commission staff working document SWD(2019) 650 which complained the significant ML vulnerability of legal professions. After being awarded a grant under the Justice Programme 2014-2020, the project started in December 2020 and will run for 2 years, until November 2022.
Four high-level seminars have been implemented from April to June 2022, aiming at letting training participants:
- Acquire experimental insight and knowledge in EU law on AML/CFT;
- Improve their capacity in ML/FT risk assessment;
- Perform AML/CFT reporting obligations;
- Analyse business relationships without intermediaries.
The series of seminar was a useful tool to promote trust among practitioners of different countries and for ensuring smoother cross-border judicial proceedings.
The coordinator of the project – Confprofessioni – with support from all the other partners organises the final event of the project, which deals with the role of legal professions in the field of AML/CFT.
The event gathers lawyers and notaries from across Europe, as well the associations that represent them at the national and European level.
Hosted within the premises of the European and Social Committee in Brussels, the conference will feature a presentation on the project results, as well as interventions by experts and discussions on legal and policy issues in the field of AML/CFT.
Special focus will be given to a debate among the different national situations and to the new legislative package on AML, but also on the view of lawyers and notaries on these new developments.
Among the speakers, representatives of the European institutions, of legal professional bodies at European level as well as renowned judicial professionals.
