Combating Threats to the International Financial System: The Financial Action Task Force

 

Friday, April 25, 2014 at New York Law School.

Registration for this event is available here.

In response to rampant international money laundering and terrorist financing, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) was established to set international standards and promote the effective implementation of legislative and regulatory reforms. This symposium examines policy recommendations promulgated by FATF, their implementation at both state and federal levels, and their direct impact on legal professionals in the corporate, financial, and trusts and estates legal fields.

This event is being organized by the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel (ACTEC), the New York Law School Center for Business and Financial Law, and the New York Law School Law Review. The symposium chairs are Professor William LaPiana, Director of the New York Law School Estate Planning, Graduate Tax Program, and Professor Houman Shadab, Co-Director of the New York Law School Center for Business and Financial Law.

Papers from this symposium will be published in an issue of the New York Law School Law Review in spring, 2015.  To pre-order a copy of the issue using PayPal click here.  To pre-order a copy using a credit card or by check, complete and return this form.
