The Future of Law: Part Two

23 March 2021

Modern technologies are changing industries with lightning speed, and the legal industry is no exception. These evolving technologies are reshaping the law, changing the way lawyers work with clients and influencing the role of a lawyer.

Often highly complex (especially when it comes to blockchain and crypto assets) and most likely misunderstood, these webinars aim to educate legal professionals and open a dialogue on what we should expect in the coming years.

Our Head of Blockchain and Senior Solicitor Will Foulkes and our Legal Engineer, Jay Smith, were joined by the Professor Sarah Green, Law Commissioner for Commercial and Common Law, and Stevie Ghiassi, CEO and Co-Founder of Legaler to share their expertise when it comes to this rapidly changing landscape.
