> Successful webinar on blockchain law

On 11 January 2020, the ITM (University of Münster) held a one-hour webinar on current problems of blockchain technology in law. Alexander Bauer from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology reported on the basics of blockchain technology and the resulting legal issues, particularly in the German Civil Code (BGB), compulsory enforcement and insolvency, to an audience of around 200 from the student body, the legal profession and business. The lecture series will continue on 18 January with a zoom lecture by Professor Dr Guido Westkamp (Queen Mary College/London) on transformation as a phenomenon in international copyright law.
