The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation to Present CLE Program on the International Regulation of Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism

 Noted ABF Research Professor Terence Halliday will anchor program at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco

CHICAGO, August 5, 2013 – The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation will host a CLE program, “Dirty Money: Can Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism be Effectively Regulated?,” featuring ABF Research Professor Terence Halliday. The August 10 research seminar is one of several events being hosted by The Fellows during the 2013 American Bar Association Annual Meeting.  

In addition to his ABF appointment, Professor Halliday is Co-Director of The Center on Law and Globalization of the American Bar Foundation and Team Leader for an assessment undertaken in cooperation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He will report on how the IMF has performed as the largest assessment body and will address how the monitoring of anti-money laundering and the financing of terrorism challenge national and international regulators, financial institutions, illegal markets and producers of dirty money.

Panelists participating in the program include Michael Lintern-Smith, Senior Partner at Robertsons Solicitors in Hong Kong; Kevin L. Shepherd of Venable LLP in Baltimore, MD and Maryland Fellows State Co- Chair; and Richard Messick, Consultant, Legal Development and Anticorruption at Messick Group, former Senior Public Sector Specialist on Governance at the World Bank, and Senior Fellow at Instituto Libertad y Democracia. The panel will be moderated by David K.Y. Tang, Managing Partner for Asia at K&L Gates in San Francisco, CA, and a past president of the American Bar Foundation.
