Why You Should Attend

Blockchain is a fundamental technology which will dramatically transform all industries. We have recently seen the rise of non-fungible tokens and the fall of crypto, which will be discussed in detail. Blockchains will also impact lawyers and law firms directly through the implementation of smart contracts. This program will provide an overview of the technology as well as the emerging legal issues lawyers need to understand to effectively assist companies with blockchain implementations.
