Event Registration - Beyond Bitcoin: What is Blockchain?

Dates:  11/16/2017
Description:  Isn't blockchain just for cryptocurrencies like BitCoin? Actually, these distributed databases can do much more than track funds. Being resistant to change but also transparent, blockchains can be used to store all kinds of data, particularly legal data. In this webinar, we'll discuss the basics of blockchain - what it is, how they are created, and how they are being used today. We will also explore how blockchains are incorporated into legal research and practice - from legal contracts to real estate transactions and authenticating documents. Please contact us if you have a disability that may require live captioning services. It is the attendee's responsibility to contact the director of education 10 days before the live webinar. If you are a non-member and do not have an AALL login, please create a profile before registering.
