This event is centered around a mock trial that will play through a scenario using a blockchain pegged digital signature on a legal contract for the sale of goods. This initial event completes our five-event series on this project and is our dress-rehearsal for a more formal mock trial planned for fall semester 2017 in proper mock trial courtrooms of a "legal hackers" friendly local law school.

Background and Context

This is the fifth and final event series of five meetups. The prior meetup events in this series have been dedicated to prototyping the digital signature and blockchain wallet application and developing the legal fact pattern and mock trial dispute scenario to test the issues.
