Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“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

Dean Evans

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!

Evans talks branded coins and the next wave of #blockchainedu & #innovation at #VoiceofBlockchain

CompetitiveStable

I am excited to return to the second annual Voice of Blockchain Conference, touted as the only blockchain conference to bring a no-pitch event connecting the blockchain ecosystem VoB consists of three tracks of content: Corporate and Enterprise, Digital Assets and Markets, and Impact and Innovation.

Monday, September 30th at 10:55 AM (Main Stage)

Stablecoins

Competitive Analysis of Stablecoins, with my co-panelist Nik Tchouparaov (CEO, Moneyfold Ltd), is moderated by the dynamic Alexandra Pordromos (Chicago Blockchain Center). We will explore what stablecoins are and how the definition has changed over time, as the space has matured. We will share our thoughts about some of the most exciting use cases for stablecoins and critique the impact and future of “corporate coins” like Libra, Walmart, for example, and fiat-alternative stablecoins like JP Morgan’s JPMCoin, Wells Fargo’s new dollar-pegged coin pilot for ‘better, faster, cheaper’ cross-border settlement within its system.

[CB Insights Report on Stablecoins]

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.
