The first annual Computational Law & Blockchain Festival will bring together coders, designers, lawyers, policymakers, researchers, and students to co-create the future of law, legal practice, and policymaking. In the spirit of decentralization, the entire event will be hosted by independent, self-organized nodes around the world.
This global initiative will be a push to create and implement computational law (e.g., programmable contracts) and legal blockchain use cases. We will achieve this through a combination of educational sessions, hackathons, and policy discussions. Join us so you can LEARN, HACK, and DISCUSS:
LEARN: New to computational law or blockchain technologies? Learn the basics from local and global experts at our educational sessions and workshops.
HACK: Are you a coder or designer? Take part in our Global Challenge, a distributed, 24-hour hackathon that challenges participants to build open-source solutions. Partner challenges will also be available.
DISCUSS: Join lawyers, policymakers, technologists, academics, and enthusiasts for our Global Symposium, a distributed policy hack to discuss core policy issues related to blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies with the goal of contributing to a free and open global survey of those issues.
The Festival welcomes enthusiasts of all ages, genders, backgrounds, skill levels, and disciplines, and will be free to attend and participate. #clbfest2018
