Finally! The First Blockchain Lawyers MasterClass is Coming to Kenya!
2-DAY TRAINING – The Blockchain for Lawyers MasterClass – Nairobi Edition [3rd-4th- March, 2020]

This Blockchain for Lawyers Masterclass is the first of its kind in Africa!

If you are a lawyer (or a future lawyer), compliance officer, regulator, policy maker, or play other related roles today, you need a comprehensive introduction to blockchain & cryptocurrency law and regulations. This class is for you.

What Participants Will Learn

- Introduction to blockchain technology, taking a close look at its features, types, relationship with bitcoin, and the blockchain ecosystem today

- You will have a deep understanding of virtual assets, their structure, risks, and best practices.

- Cryptocurrency exchanges, blockchain & cryptocurrency regulation and consumer protection through KYC, AML, and CFT policies towards curbing financial risks, ensuring consumer protection, and boosting national security.

- It will look at blockchain & cryptocurrency regulation across major jurisdictions, including the United States, China, Switzerland, and several others, including Kenya.

- For lawyers in the house, the course will look at blockchain application in the legal industry, from the chain of custody to dispute resolution, land registries and property deeds to intellectual property, and many more.

- Smart contracts and the law will also be discussed—considering what they are, types, benefits, applications, limitations, and whether they are legally enforceable. It will also consider whether smart contracts will make lawyers irrelevant.

- Finally, the course will show how lawyers could leverage blockchain for professional growth and opportunities. Both on Day One and Day Two of the program, there will be group tasks and interactions.
