Blockchain: Law, Business and Economics


Blockchain: Law, Business and Economics logo



Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers are the underlying technologies of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, but also enable many other use cases to rely 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. A three-hour basic programming workshop will provide a first-hand experience in the technical background of blockchains and ‘smart contracts’.

The seminar is organized by the College of Law and Business in Israel and the University of Kassel in Germany, and will take place at Tel Aviv metropolitan area, one of the world’s most innovative start-up cities. Alongside the academic lectures, touristic and study tours will take place as well.

We invite advanced bachelor and master students from law, economics, business and related fields to participate in the interdisciplinary seminar.
