Law Schools Should Be Teaching Bitcoin To Students

Bitcoin Magazine, The Next Generation of Attorneys: Three Reasons Why Law Schools Should Be Teaching Bitcoin to Students:

Bitcoin (2021)As the COVID-19 pandemic forced many lawyers to work remotely, more law school students are signing up for legal tech courses to enhance their abilities in a rapidly evolving job market.

The pandemic certainly presented a new challenge for the legal landscape, as courtrooms and firms just weren’t prepared to go remote and were forced to adopt new digital technologies as basic as Zoom and Microsoft Teams. With more law students feeling comfortable leveraging video conferencing platforms, there seems to be a bigger focus on how technologies like Bitcoin can help solve legal challenges, but with little execution by many law schools.

Having conversations about blockchain helps students explore more fundamental questions about finance and transactions both in the U.S. and abroad. These are questions that help us understand what Bitcoin is about.

Here are three reasons why, in our post-pandemic world, law schools should be teaching their students about the world of Bitcoin.

#1 - Stop Teaching to the Bar Exam and Start Preparing Students for the Real World ...

#2 - Understanding Regulatory Bodies Helps Provide  for a More Competent Lawyer ...

#3 - Your Ethical Obligations May One Day Depend Upon It
