LIGHT aims to increase the competency of lawyers and notaries in AML/CFT, therefore strengthening their role in the implementation of AML/CFT and ensuring the effectiveness of AML/CFT policy. The project stems from the 2019 Commission staff working document SWD(2019) 650 which complained about the significant ML vulnerability of legal professions. After being awarded a grant under the Justice Programme 2014-2020, the project started in December 2020 and will run for 2 years, until November 2022.

Project activities include: a preparatory phase, including an assessment of the national implementation of EU law in AML/CFT as well as the development of methodologies and educational material; implementation of the training activities, including eLearning and four high-level training seminars; complementary activities to promote compliance with AML/CFT law in day-to-day practice, including a collection of best practices, a study visit to Europol, an action plan on national CPD initiatives on AML/CFT and a European conference;

The consortium is led by Confprofessioni, Italian Confederation of Liberal professions, and composed by the following entities: Women Lawyers’ Association, from Bulgaria; European Council of the Liberal Professions, from Belgium; Federnotai, Italian Federation of Notaries’ Associations; International Union of Notaries (UINL); Spanish General Council of Notaries; General Council of Spanish Lawyers.
