There is a panel specifically examining the impact of blockchain and smart contracts on the legal profession. Topics will include how the practise of law will change in the era of smart contracts and blockchain; to what degree human judgement will still be required; and the intersection of smart contracts functioning as legal contracts.
In the December Legal IT Insider newsletter, out today (13 December), blockchain inevitably features highly within IT directors’ reflections on the highlights and challenges of 2016 and beyond.
Richard Hodkinson, chief technology officer at DWF tells Legal IT Insider: “This last year has seen a coming together of a number of themes, which between them are the foundations of monumental disruption to the legal market over the next five-to-10 years. Blockchain, AI, the digital agenda, consumerisation/agile working are starting to change the traditional law firm business model forever.”
Blockchain Expo will explore the industries that are set to be disrupted the most by this new technology, including; legal, financial services, healthcare, insurance, energy, music, government and real estate.
