Kevin Shepherd speaks at the Fellows CLE Research Seminar at ABA Annual Meeting

This event has already occurred.
Kevin Shepherd served on a panel sponsored by the American Bar Foundation (ABF) entitled “Dirty Money: Can Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism be Effectively Regulated?”

The ABF is the ABA’s legal research arm and the nation’s premier body for empirical legal analysis, and Kevin’s panel previewed an empirical research project that will be released next month in Washington in coordination with the International Monetary Fund questioning the regulatory effectiveness of the sprawling anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regimes governments have created domestically and internationally.

Kevin’s co-panelists at the August 10 program included Terrence Holliday, ABF research professor and co-director of the Center on Law and Globalization, David K.Y. Tang, Managing Partner—Asia, K& L Gates, Michael Lintern-Smith, Senior Partner, Robertsons Solicitors in Hong Kong, and Richard Messick, Senior Fellow at Instituto Libertad y Demoncracia and former World Bank official.
