Fintech: Blockchain

8 August 17

Law Society of Scotland CPD

This live webinar takes place from 12:30-13:30.

Blockchain is a buzzword among tech circles at the moment, but what does it really mean, and how can it be used in practice?

Andrew Jordan and Leigh Kirkpatrick, Legal Counsels of RBS Legal, will explore the law in relation to blockchain and provide insight and introductory guidance on the many legal and regulatory issues to think about in working with this emerging technology.

Blockchain technology is undoubtedly exciting and potentially gamechanging for many areas and is something that needs to be understood by the banking and legal industry. This webinar will set out the basics of what blockchain is, how RBS has developed expertise in the area, and what challenges in-house legal teams may face in relation to regulatory regimes and intellectual property.
