“Alison, Can You Explain What the Internet is?” – Katie Couric & Bryant Gumbel to their producer, The Today Show, 1994
The Dictaphone. The electric typewriter. The photocopy machine. Sound and video recording devices. The internet. There was a time when all of this was new technology and lawyers couldn’t imagine if and how it would fit into their law practices.
The next in this evolutionary process is blockchain. It may seem mysterious or complicated, but blockchain technology is already being used in many legal arenas and it will undoubtedly be one that becomes commonplace in law practices in the near future. Blockchain can save both time and money, and do it with a transparency that will lesson or even eliminate the concern about someone stealing information or hacking into a system to steal funds.
Over the past few years, the term "blockchain" has both become synonymous with cryptocurrency (otherwise called “bitcoin”) - and has earned the respect of prominent thought leaders thorough the business and financial sectors. Also referred to as distributed ledger technology, companies in virtually every industry are beginning to understand how to apply blockchain-based solutions to solve business problems, and some analysts have predicted that we are on the verge of a new digital revolution powered by blockchain technology. In the law, the use of blockchain systems can save time in drafting contracts, administering estates, closing real estate transactions, billing clients, paying experts and more. Even better, it can do all of this while safeguarding both information and money so that there is little concern for violating confidentiality or theft.
As an attendee, in just 1.5 hours (from the comfort of your home or office) you'll learn everything you need to know to both understand and apply blockchain technology in both your practice and the businesses of the clients you represent. You'll gain a working knowledge (presented in a clear, easy-to-understand way) of the theory behind blockchain, as well as a virtual roadmap showing how it has been applied today. By the end, blockchain will go from a mysterious new technology to a solid tool to use in your practice.
