ConsenSys is delighted to announce that Prof. Aaron Wright and Priyanka Desai of the OpenLaw Project are collaborating with Latham & Watkins to host a seminar explaining what the OpenLaw protocol is, how it works in practice, and its potential benefits to businesses that use or provide legal services. We will also discuss broader topics, including the advantages and limitations of the use of smart contracts in legal agreements from a practical and legal perspective.
OpenLaw is a blockchain-based protocol for the creation and execution of legal agreements. Using OpenLaw, lawyers can more efficiently engage in transactional work, and digitally sign and store legal agreements in a highly secure manner, all while leveraging next generation blockchain-based smart contracts.
ConsenSys is a venture production studio building decentralized applications, and various developer and end-user tools for blockchain ecosystems, primarily focused on the Ethereum network.
