Blockchain and the Law Workshop

March 8, 2019 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Blockchain was first developed to create a currency that does not rely upon governments or financial institutions. As it has expanded to smart contracts and other applications, the law has struggled to regulate this disruptive technology. Traditional regulatory schemes such as banking, commercial, commodities, securities, and tax law are all in flux with respect to what they require of blockchain applications. The Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy will host a workshop with leading law professors and practitioners who will discuss the state of the major legal and regulatory issues concerning blockchain technology.

This event is sponsored by Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy and UCLA School of Law. It is a private event, open to invited guests only. For questions, please email estrada@law.ucla.edu.
