Blockchain Legal and Regulatory Professional - Online

The legal industry is undergoing profound changes, as the digital revolution takes its course. New technologies and innovative business models challenge the established position legal professionals have retained for centuries. High-earning advisors to every significant business transaction will have to become accustomed to navigating this technology. With the advent of smart contract technology, business transactions of all kinds will experience a significant evolutionary step towards automation.

Contract forma based on standardized templates, the software-guided execution of machine-accessible contract clauses, and data-driven compliance solutions threaten to marginalize the role of legal counsel in many areas of business. Recently, blockchain or distributed ledger technology, has captured the minds of digital innovators, the broader financial industry and governments alike. The blockchain, a globally-shared, replicated database, tamper-proof through sophisticated consensus algorithms and strong cryptographic guarantees, enables a world of ancient data-silos to connect in completely unprecedented ways.

This  course will provide legal professionals the tools necessary to be part of a digital future, by teaching the basics of blockchain, smart contract technology, and the current regulatory environment both for the United States as well as globally. Hands-on examples and live coding sessions will demystify the phenomenon "blockchain" and introduce simple, but effective strategies to make use of smart contracts today. You will also focus on the combination of both legal and smart agreements in one cohesive process.  The techniques you learn will allow you to combine unique domain knowledge with real-world smart contract agreements, offering your clients the best of both worlds.
