Date/Time: Monday, July 16, 2018: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Speakers: Deborah Ginsberg, Chicago-Kent College of Law
We heard a lot about blockchain in 2017, but that’s just one of several crypto-technologies that will have a profound impact on the practice of law in the near future. Speakers will define the basics of these technologies and show how they work, and discuss trends in the law resulting from implementing new services using blockchain and related technologies, including smart transactions, smart wills, and more. Finally, session speakers will showcase tools for explaining these concepts to lawyers, students, and others who are encountering them for the first time.
