ICLE affiliate Thibault Schrepel to create a “blockchain summer school” at Utrecht University
Blockchain is the biggest challenge faced by antitrust law in the last 20 years. The core features of this technology create numerous issues for our legal systems to the point of endangering them. This is very true for intellectual property law and digital privacy as well. This summer school, a world first, will address all of these challenges from two perspectives: blockchain as the best ally to our legal systems and blockchain as the ultimate evil to them.
This summer school is designed for legal experts, more precisely, for master students (enrolled in a law degree), lawyers, practitioners, judges, academics, government representatives, policy officers and anyone interested in understanding how blockchain will change our societies as well as our legal systems.
