The AU Internet Governance Lab is co-sponsoring the Washington College of Law (WCL)-hosted book talk “The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust” authored by Kevin Werbach, Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. The book talk will take place on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from 5:30pm-9:00pm in the WCL Warren Building Room NT01.
Published in November 2018 by MIT Press, Professor Werbach’s new book discusses how the blockchain - a system built on foundations of mutual mistrust - can become trustworthy. Professor Werbach is an expert on business, policy, and emerging technologies such as blockchain, broadband, and big data. He is an influential figure in Internet and communications law, and was one of the first technology scholars to focus on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
The book talk is co-sponsored alongside The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property and the Program on Law and Government at WCL. Hors d’oeuvres and a reception will follow the talk.
