Summary

I speak with Stevie Ghiassi. Stevie wears a number of hats, and most recently he published the viral book Blockchain for Lawyers. Rather than talking about the ins-and-outs of blockchain technology, instead we try to answer the question: why lawyers and law firms should care about blockchain technology and smart contracts? And, how the technology will impact the profession in the future.

Show Notes

Stevie Ghiassi is CEO of Legaler, a secure online communication and collaboration tool for lawyers, CEO of Legaler Aid, a blockchain-based legal aid service that promotes access to justice, as well as President of the Australian Legal Technology Association.
