Data and Privacy

Blockchain and lawyers

Blockchain, and its related Distributed Ledger Technology is the centre of attention not only for tech-savvy enthusiasts, but also the legal profession. Blockchain and related digital systems challenge the legal profession on a variety of legal issues, including:

• privacy breaches
• use of smart contracts,
• intellectual property infringements
• consumer protection contraventions

This session introduces the concept of Blockchain and explores specific legal issues relating to its use and the use of related digital systems.
