On 11 January, the Law Society of England & Wales has published the second edition of its guidance which covers a range of key issues for legal practitioners to be aware of when advising on DLT-related matters. The report is divided into 2 parts – developing technologies and impacts on the wider landscape. The Law Society says that lawyers need to be aware not only of how network technology and other code-based technologies operate, but how these technologies impact the wider areas of litigation. This includes how decentralisation and smart contracts are changing the way financial, property and legal services are carried out.
