This course is for professionals who would like to learn more about the application of blockchain in the education space, but also what opportunities blockchain training could bring to students.
This is a non-technical course. No coding is required. No blockchain knowledge is required.
How will blockchain impact the “traditional” practice of law?
If you represent clients in blockchain-affected industries, you become an even greater resource as trusted adviser by understanding blockchain within the context of your client’s business.
Being so nascent, blockchain presents an incredible (unique, even) opportunity for lawyers to position themselves as trusted strategic advisors to clients navigating the myriad legal, regulatory, and logistical webs surrounding the technology and its applications. A lawyer serving the music industry, for example, makes herself an invaluable part of a client’s core team if she understands blockchain, how it affects her client, and how her client can capitalize on the technology.
Why? Because the lawyer as trusted advisor is situated differently than others most likely to have blockchain savvy (e.g. IT advisors). Yes, IT knows the technology (maybe). But only the lawyer can extrapolate from the technological understanding to what this really means for a client operating in a law- and regulation-bound environment.
Here are a few industry-specific examples of how lawyers can become trusted blockchain advisors to clients, within the context of an existing practice:
- The Smart Contract Firm
- The Smart Contract Mediator
- The Smart Title Company
- The Ledger Lawyer: Blockchain Law and Policy Advisor
