Logikcull Webinar – Blockchain and the Law: What Lawyers (and Their Clients) Need to Know About This Cutting-Edge Technology
Webinar Event: Thursday, March 29, 2018
Intellectual Property and Technology Law Chair Antigone Peyton will serve as a speaker at the upcoming Logikcull webinar on Thursday, March 29th. Blockchain technology is promising to remake institutions and industries throughout the world. Once synonymous with bitcoin, the virtual currency made possible by blockchain, this emerging technology is now gaining significant attention in its own right, creating opportunities and uncertainties across a wide variety of industries. Companies are looking to integrate blockchain into their business models, while technologists are investigating how it may change everything from international financial institutions to simple contracts. At the same time, government regulators are beginning to pay attention to blockchain-based technologies, taking the first steps to rein in what can sometimes feel like the “Wild West.”
More and more legal professionals, too, are becoming familiar with blockchain, whether in advising clients on the legal implications of potential blockchain initiatives, dealing with an evolving regulatory landscape, or handling disputes involving blockchain-based technologies and assets.
Join us as we explore this revolutionary technology in an upcoming webinar, examining just what blockchain technology is and what legal professionals need to know about it.
Attendees will learn:
- The basics of blockchain technology
- Common blockchain use cases
- Considerations when advising clients on blockchain
- Emerging legal and regulatory issues related to blockchain technology
