BACK TO EVENTS
Much has been discussed about the opportunities that blockchain technology presents. But what does the adoption of blockchain really mean to legal departments and is it as complex as it seems?
In the second of our annual blockchain-dedicated events, our expert panels will de-mystify blockchain technology and explore its practical implications to legal departments across a diverse range of industries with a focus on real-life case studies, while highlighting the risks, obligations, benefits and challenges associated with its implementation. In addition, the Symposium will examine the regulatory aspects of blockchain, with panels deliberating on how different jurisdictions are approaching the development and deployment of distributed ledger technologies.
