Anti-Money Laundering & Compliance 2

Course

Professor Robert Munro (University of Florida College of Law)

1. COURSE DESCRIPTION

Anti-Money Laundering Legislation (3 cr. Summer only): This course for bankers, trust officers, and compliance officers continues the in-depth comparative study of the U.S. and foreign national legal responses and  international responses to the problems of money laundering, economic crime, cyber-sabotage and terrorism. In particular, this course focuses on The Caribbean and Latin America. This course now provides in-depth analysis of the international regulation of money movements with particular regard to Latin America and The Caribbean. The student continues to explore the role and duties of the compliance officer including due diligence investigations of politically exposed persons, potential tax evaders and their counsel, and the required filing of information with regulatory authorities, including "no tipping off" rules.

We will also explore treaties designed to curb the international flow of "flying money". In addition we will examine the new typologies for money launders as well as some of the old tried and true washing methods of transforming illicit money into respectable money. A portion of our time will be devoted to an examination of what is considered to be the main event in this arena: the laws designed to take the profit from the criminal. This will invoke, in part, examining the weapon we know as asset forfeiture and a new weapon which has emerged within the boardrooms of organized crime: cybercrime.

This course is led by Dr. Robert J. Munro of the Center for International Financial Crimes Studies as well as a law librarian of the Frederic Levin College of Law. He is the co-author of the five volume treatise, Money Laundering, Asset Forfeiture and International Financial Crimes and the three volume treatise, Cyber crime and Security. Besides the final examination, this course uses common law case examination, complex case studies, individual assignments and a research course paper.
