Today, Monday, December 17, 2018, Professor Tonya M. Evans will join Wharton Business Radio host, professor and author, Kevin Warbach, for the “After the Blockchain Bubble” episode to discuss the future of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
UNH Law has been a Top-10 ranked intellectual property (IP) program ever since U.S. News & World Report began ranking IP programs 27 years ago. Now, UNH Law is proud to pioneer the study of the next frontier of IP innovation: blockchain.
SHOW DESCRIPTION: Cryptocurrency prices have crashed and blockchain applications have not gained traction. What comes next? Will we look back on this time as the end of an overhyped fad, or a speed bump in the development of a major technological revolution? Wharton Professor Kevin Werbach talks with seven experts in a variety of fields all relating to different aspects of blockchain. Together we’ll discuss the future of blockchain and cryptocurrency. Kevin Werbach is the author of “The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust” and a Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the Wharton School.
I know it’s not over yet, but 2018 has already been one filled with amazing opportunities, experiences and accomplishments for me. I joined the phenomenal faculty at the University of New Hampshire School of Law (formerly Franklin Pierce Law Center) in the fall of 2017. Since that time it has been planes, trains, and automobiles.
It feels like I created my own “Where in the world is Professor Evans” game as I traveled the world to share my experiences and expertise about the intersections of intellectual property and technology, with a decided focus on blockchain and IP. Reminds me a lot of my life before law school when I traveled the world as a professional tennis player. So I guess all of my experiences have prepared me for this moment in time.
I was thrilled to be one of the faculty members featured in this month’s Franklin Pierce IP News, which highlights some of the impressive accomplishments of UNH Law faculty. My highlight focused on a recent nomination by Judge Patricia Elaine Campbell-Smith, and appointment by Chief Judge Margaret M. Sweeney, to the IP Committee of the Advisory Council to the US Court of Federal Claims.
