Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers are the underlying technologies of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, but also enable many other uses that depand on immutable information and executable code – ‘smart contracts’. The seminar provides students with a profound understanding of the economic incentives and the legal structures underlying blockchain applications in business and in law. Academic classes alternate with lectures by practitioners from business and law firms as well as government institutions, all applying blockchain technology.
The seminar is organized by the College of Law and Business in Israel and the University of Kassel in Germany, and will be over ZOOM. In addition to the academic lectures, the course will include virtual tours of Israel.
We invite students from law, economics, business and related fields to participate in the interdisciplinary seminar.
