What do you need to know about cryptocurrency?  

Cryptocurrencies are beginning to throw up challenging legal questions globally, and it’s not going away. 

Join us for an in-depth discussion of the legal issues arising from the use of cryptocurrencies. With a focus on commercial issues, this webinar will help judicial officers to understand:

  • Can cryptocurrency assets be frozen?
  • What mechanisms can be used when making orders on cryptocurrencies?
  • What questions do you need to ask when cryptocurrency is brought up in court?

These topics and more will be covered as part of our Cyber, Courts and Community Series webinar.

This webinar is open to judicial officers only.
