8:00 am - 9:30 am

Blockchains - decentralized systems for enabling "trustless" transactions - have the potential to change the ways we interact and do business. From payments, to initial coin offerings (ICOs), to self-sovereign identities, blockchains are commanding attention well beyond the initial Bitcoin enthusiasts. Join Duke alumni for a special breakfast event as we explore this burgeoning technology and its current and future impact on our world. Duke Faculty Fellow and School of Law professor, Jeff Ward JD'09, LLM'09, director of the Duke Center on Law & Technology, and a panel of Duke alumni including Johanna Collins-Wood '09, JD'13, associate, Pepper Hamilton LLP; Ian Darrow JD'15, attorney and software developer (previously general counsel and chief regulatory officer, LedgerX); Jai Massari JD'07, partner, Davis Polk; and Cynthia Meyn MBA'10, P'21, executive vice president of operations, PIMCO. Specific location: Pepper Hamilton LLP, The New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue, Floor 37, New York, New York 10018. Co-hosted by the Duke Law Alumni & Development Office and DukeNY.
