All sessions are held at Singapore Academy of Law @ The Adelphi.

Get ready for a full day of fireside chats and presentations that cover the key topics being discussed in the computational law and blockchain scene right now, ranging from Security Token Offerings (STOs) to ethical considerations surrounding the industry to the Payments Services Act (PSA) in Singapore. Overview presentations will precede the panel discussions and provide introductions to these topics beforehand.

Breakout sessions include presentations by a variety of projects which:

- Develop blockchain solutions for the provision of legal services;

- Research on the use of blockchain across spaces, such as for social impact/ sustainable development (hear from the Co-Author of the instructive Stanford Graduate School of Business paper "Blockchain for Social Impact: Moving beyond the hype" available at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1blvcoOp49pkf8WFeXSHq6CvhgL4w23Yi); for research (presented by a Co-Chair, Blockchain group at CodeX, Stanford Centre for Legal Informatics); for enterprise financial services (from the Quorum team at JP Morgan)
