In this online seminar, Peter Alldridge (Drapers’ Professor of Law at Queen Mary University of London) will draw attention to three steps which in hindsight were decisive in the growth of the AML industry. At the time, those seemed to be small incremental steps, but were radical conceptual changes in the structure of laundering crimes, and whose consequences remain. They are:

  • (i) the move beyond treating drugs offences as the only foundation of money laundering, to a far wider category;
  • (ii) the move towards regarding laundering as an independent wrong rather than a form of complicity in the predicate and
  • (iii) the move to include tax offences among the grounds for laundering.
In his talk, Professor Alldridge will reflect upon their significance, engaging with questions from the audience in the Q&A session that will follow.
