Learn. Build. Discuss.

On March 16-18, 2018, the first annual Computational Law & Blockchain Festival will bring together coders, designers, lawyers, policymakers, researchers, and students from around the world to co-create the future of law, legal practice, and policymaking.

This global initiative will be a push to create and implement computational law (e.g., programmable contracts) and legal blockchain use cases. We will achieve this through a combination of educational sessions, hackathons, and policy discussions. In the spirit of decentralization, this entire event is hosted by independent, self-organized nodes around the world. Join us so you can LEARN, BUILD, and DISCUSS:

LEARN: New to computational law or blockchain technologies? Learn the basics from local and global experts at our educational sessions.

BUILD: Are you a coder or designer? Come test your hacking skills on one of our global challenges. Opportunities for local and global awards for winners!

DISCUSS: What’s the appropriate role of government in the blockchain ecosystem? Are ICOs securities offerings? What are the benefits and drawbacks of computational law for the legal system and society? How can we promote a welcoming and diverse blockchain community? Let’s discuss!

The Festival welcomes enthusiasts of all ages, genders, backgrounds, skill levels, and disciplines, and will be free to attend and participate. The Boston Node will be located at Cambidge Innovation Center and loosely track to the Internation Schedule for this event. Registered participants will receive the specific schedule and activity meeting location details at our node.
