Smart Contracts and Blockchain – The Future of Law

23 March, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Smart Contracts and Blockchain – The Future of Law
A course written to assist lawyers and business executives to understand legal requirements and changes in a fast-growing digital world.

New CPD Course:

How Legal Professionals Can Benefit from Innovation & Provide New Services That Are in High Demand

The world is going digital.

Legal professionals with even a basic understanding of technology are in more demand than ever before. It’s not only the needs of clients that are changing, however.

According to an article published by Deloitte, within the next two decades an estimated 114,000 jobs in the legal sector will likely be replaced by emerging technology.

“Before long an understanding of this technology will be the price of admission to the legal practice.”

~ Jarrod Haggerty, Lead Partner, Deloitte Forensic Technology
