Blockchain technology, applications, and investments are developing rapidly. Regulators try to tackle new forms of digital assets and transactions in a decentralized universe of distributed ledgers, tokens, and smart contracts. In this seminar, we will cover common blockchain topics, such as cyptocurrencies, ICOs and regulatory sandboxes from a legal perspective with a focus on recent developments in Asia.

About CLE Credit

Temple Law School is an accredited provider of continuing legal education (CLE) in Pennsylvania. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.
