A Conference and Workshop on:

BLOCKCHAIN, SMART CONTRACTS, AND THE PATH OF THE LAW


We are organizing an academic conference to explore the path the the law is and should be taking as it evolves in the face of the rapid growth in the use of blockchain based transactions across our societies. Our aim is to explore the intersection of smart contracts and contract law. In doing so, we will consider a wide range of issues, including the challenges of developing ethical AI in the development of the blockchain based transaction platforms.


In doing so, we seek to bring together philosophers, legal theorists, practicing lawyers, computer scientists and blockchain developers to consider the following issues: (1) the potential use of smart contracts to address corruption in our politics and economy, (2) the potential for the misuse of cryptocurrencies in illicit black market transactions, (3) and a wide range of topics in between.


The conference is being hosted by the Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Letters at Northern Arizona University, and is tentatively scheduled for November 3rd through the 6th, 2021. See the list of topics and the call for papers and poster presentations.
