Blockchain Legal Trends

Start/End Monday, April 07, 2014 12:10 PM EDT -- 01:10 PM EDT
Location Name JG 101

CBLA is proud to sponsor, along with SLST and CLES, a panel discussion on the regulatory and legal trends surrounding the public ledger database known as the "Blockchain," which is integral to the functioning of Bitcoin. Our panelists will introduce you to the tech basics before moving on to the legal landscape and to hot topics such as "Smart Contracts." You will also learn about the involvement of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, the SEC, the IRS and the CFTC.

This panel will be extremely useful to all law students who seek to distinguish themselves by demonstrating knowledge of the latest legal topics.

Time will be allotted at the end for Q&A, and a non-pizza lunch will be served. Contact Claudie Tirefort at crt2128@columbia.edu with any questions.
