STRASBOURG, France, Sept 24 (AFP) - Europe's first ever course in money-laundering has opened at Robert Schuman university in Strasbourg, with a group of 15 post-graduate students taking classes in methods for detecting illegal financial transactions, the university said Friday.  

"If we want to start preventing money-laundering, then we need to train specialists capable of dismantling financial operations," said Chantal Cutajar, the law lecturer behind the course.  

Students taking the diploma in "prevention of fraud and money-laundering" will be taught tax and business law, as well as computer fraud, business ethics and "criminal finance analysis." Police and customs officers will give classes.
