“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”
Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.
How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?
Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead
Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.
Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.
Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!
In this episode of Tech Intersect, I welcome Stefen Deleveaux to the show. Stefen is a Bahamian economist and an authority on blockchain and fintech in the Caribbean. He is President/CEO of the Caribbean Blockchain Alliance (CBA), which is a regional NGO formed to advocate for blockchain technology and to foster its adoption through awareness and education. CBA is supported by major Caribbean blockchain companies. Stefen has led the blockchain education of software developers and has facilitated various hackathons. He continues to push to build cohorts of blockchain developers in the region. Stefen has worked in multi-lateral financial institutions and in grantmaking foundations. He is also a co-founder of the Shift the Culture startup advocacy group, and the Arrowlynk Ventures business incubator, both based in The Bahamas. We talk about the friction-laden traditional worlds of finance and art are vulnerable to distributed ledger tech and decentralized applications and why this creates opportunities for the black community in the Caribbean and throughout the Diaspora to upend systemic discrimination and truly create generational wealth. Stefen shares a lot of wisdom so get ready to take notes and then take action.SPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY Got goals? Want to get ahead of the competition?

Of course, we cannot help but discuss whether the Libra hearings had a positive or negative effect on the crypto ecosystem and some hurdles to mainstream adoption and proliferation of stablecoins.
The Future of Innovation
In my second panel, Preparing for the Next Wave of Innovation we will discuss whether the future of blockchain is the future of all technology. This discussion will examine the changes in funding structures, innovation, and the evolution of how society organizes itself. From enterprise to decentralized ecosystems, we will discuss how blockchain is likely to evolve to become a part our everyday life and what is needed to get there. I will focus on the impact of blockchain and crypto on education, especially higher ed, and the impact of education on blockchain and crypto.
