Professor Aaron Wright, founder and director of Cardozo’s Tech Startup Clinic, has co-authored Blockchain and the Law, which is a bestseller on Amazon’s science and technology and network storage and retrieval administration book lists.

The book explores the development and goals of blockchain since its inception in 2009, and its myriad of uses which include expedited payment systems and smart contracts. Wright and co-author Primavera de Filippi also explore ideas for new governance and regulations being put into place to effectively protect the technology and its users.

Cardozo will celebrate the book’s launch, and Wright and de Filippi will explore the ideas in-depth during a book launch event and pane discussion Wednesday, May 9 at 7 p.m. in the Jacob Burns Moot Court Room.
