The future of contracting is here. The webinar addresses block chains, smart contracts and smart legal contracts from a very high, yet informative level designed to avoid technical complexity but enhance audience understanding. The presenters discuss what block chains (including distributed ledgers) are and how they work, their respective advantages particularly regarding the use of smart legal contracts over conventional contract modalities, various legal issues each engenders and the general nature of disputes that will inevitably arise. The presenters then discuss why arbitration is ideally suited to resolve these disputes and provide pertinent considerations, and finally address drafting concerns for arbitration clauses to be used in transactions involving smart contracts and smart legal contracts.
