Blockchain technology might be the most important addition to the legal infrastructure since the Norman Conquest gave rise to common law.  Blockchain is already being used in the financial sector to supplant paper-based and traditional computing models for trust-dependent transactions.  It's being used to register land titles, replace notary functions and manage other peripheral legal functions.  How does blockchain work, and why is it important?  What do you need to consider to position your firm to leverage this innovative, new technology?  Where is the intersection between blockchain and artificial intelligence?  What steps should you be taking now to educate and prepare your attorneys and align the firm's technology strategy with an emerging technology that's likely to be as disruptive as Web 1.0 was in the 1990s?
