2024 Sanctions

UK Sanctions Compliance Training

Created for chambers to better understand their obligations when it comes to complying with UK sanctions.

In recent years, the volume and complexity of financial sanctions has grown massively in response to current global events. The political situation is fast moving and those subject to these sanctions continue to find means of evading them.

Providing an accessible introduction to the topic, this training has been designed to equip barristers and chambers staff with a working knowledge of their statutory duties and professional regulatory requirements pertaining to sanctions.

What are Sanctions?

In their most basic terms, sanctions are restrictive measures put in place to fulfil legal obligations, domestically or internationally. They are rolled out for different reason or to achieve different things, like changing behaviour, cutting off resources or to show disapproval.

  • Have an initial understanding of risks to consider in providing legal services to sanctioned clients.
