Training Seminar on Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism

May 26 - May 27

#LightSeminar_Sofia

 

Background

LIGHT aims to enhance the functional competency of lawyers and notaries through four main profiles, which will let 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 intermediates.

Four high-level seminars cover these profiles. The transnational character of these training activities makes it possible for legal practitioners of different nationalities to attend the event. This is meant as a useful tool to promote trust among practitioners of different countries and for ensuring smoother cross-border judicial proceedings. Moreover, being face-to-face, the seminars should help create an informal network which may be useful for solving everyday cross-border issues.

Each seminar will combine theory and practice, such as case studies and workshops.

 

The Training Seminar

The Bulgarian Association for Women Lawyers (WLA) organises the third training seminar of the project, held in Sofia. The seminar will deal with KYC guidelines, customer due diligence, beneficial ownership, reporting obligations, record keeping requirements, evidence gathering and regulatory technology. It will also focus on red flag indicators, with a workshop dedicated to case studies and best practices in this field.

As for the agenda, it is worth mentioning in particular the two main trainers: Assoc. Prof. Todor Kolarov, D.Sc., Head of the National and International Security Department at the New Bulgarian University, and Dr. Gergana Yordanova, PhD, assistant professor in the same department. In addition, several high-level guests will join the seminar, among them: Mr. Nikola Minchev, chairperson of the Bulgarian National Assembly, Mrs. Mariyana Kancheva, judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union, and Mrs. Galina Zaharova, chairperson of the Supreme Court of Cassation.
