Professor Ekow Yankah spoke to Arise News about Meek Mill's release from prison and the plight that many people of color face when navigating the criminal justice system. Probation violations, sometimes seemingly minor, can often lead to consequences with tremendous effects.
May 10, 2018 - Professor Aaron Wright's book Blockchain and the Law, co-authored with Primavera De Filippi, was reviewed in Fortune magazine. Wright and de Filippi spoke to a standing-room only audience Wednesday, May 9 at Cardozo, on a panel moderated by Cornell law professor James Grimmelmann.
The review commented, "Blockchain and the Law is not just a theoretical guide. It’s also a moral one, as De Filippi and Wright warn that governments who ignore lex cryptographica could lose control of the emerging world of blockchain. If a government does not provide protective mechanisms … the current regulatory framework government by the rule of law may eventually be replaced by a system of algorithmic governance, operated exclusively through the rule of code."
