BLCN636. Legal & Regulatory Framework of Blockchain

This course is developed for high level business people (and those on their way) who want a broad understanding of the legal and regulatory frameworks being developed around blockchain technology. This course will empower business leaders to understand how governments are approaching and potentially regulating the usage of blockchain technology. Students will gain an understanding of how the US Federal government/regulatory agencies, state governments and the governments of foreign nations are treating the implementation of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. This course is not a deep legal curriculum, but rather is focused on helping executives grasp the basics of the legislative and regulatory processes specific to the emerging technology.
