House of Lords publish work submitted by Queen Mary LLM students
In response to a call for evidence, Thai, UK and Italian current students taking the LLM class in 'Economic Crime' were able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have gained from their classes, when they recently submitted evidence to the House of Lords Committee, under the guidance of the course leaders Professor Peter Alldridge and Dr Valsamis Mitsilegas.
The written evidence was for the Committee's inquiry on EU initiatives to counter money laundering and terrorist finance.
On the basis of the submission, Professor Alldridge and Dr Mitsilegas gave oral evidence to the Committee on 1 April.
