The practice of law is changing. In the same way that technologies like blockchain, IoT, and big data have stressed traditional approaches to doing business in finance, commerce, health, education and other major sectors, law and policy requires new skills and tools to be effective.
The series of presentations, discussions and hands-on learning opportunities and software demonstrations will offer practitioners and technologists an opportunity to LEARN, DISCUSS AND "HACK" on the technology and law and policy challenges leading this space. Participants will join a diverse community of lawyers, academics, policy makers, and technologists in more than forty locations around the world exploring and defining this exciting new area of law and technology, as part of the 2018 COMPUTATIONAL LAW & BLOCKCHAIN FESTIVAL
Legal practitioners, policy analysts, technologist and anyone interested in learning, discussing and hacking on these topics are encouraged to participate. The software demos are selected for both veteran software developers and participants new to the technologies opportunity to develop a stronger technical understanding of Computational and Blockchain law and policy implications.
