This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess the future of the legal technology landscape – and how its development will affect the overall growth of the sector, established and new legal firms in the UK, and the quality and range of services for clients.
This seminar is scheduled to follow the publication of the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce’s legal statement on the status of cryptoassets, distributed ledger technologies (DLT) and smart contracts under English private law.
Delegates will consider the conclusions reached and the optimal approaches for increasing certainty and investor confidence, including legislative possibilities.
The discussion takes place as the pace of innovation is increasing. We expect discussion of the implications of developments such as the launch of the first off-the-shelf connected parametric insurance contract – including the potential of this model for other ‘connected’ products.
Delegates will consider how to maximise the potential benefits as well as manage the risks of the increasing use of algorithms in decision-making across the legal sector.
