Please join us for a program sponsored by the Orange County, Los Angeles, Northern California, San Diego, and Women’s Alliance Harvard Law School Associations on the future of the law of cryptocurrency with a panel of distinguished experts and HLS alumni. The panel, which includes Former Deputy National Security Adviser Juan Zarate (’97), cryptocurrency law expert and Professor Angela Walch (’02), and federal cybercrime prosecutor Cameron Schroeder (’01), will be moderated by Joshua Robbins (’04) of Buchalter.
Topics will include:
- What societal risks—such as fraud, money laundering, financial instability, and environmental impact—does cryptocurrency pose, and how can governments address this without stifling its benefits?
- Should and will cryptocurrency be regulated as currency? Securities? Neither? Both?
- What agencies of the federal government should be involved in regulating cryptocurrency and prosecuting related crimes?
- What are the prospects for Congressional action on cryptocurrency?
- How does the U.S. approach to cryptocurrency regulation compare to those of other countries?
Whether you are a total skeptic or a total fan of cryptocurrency, and regardless of your field of practice or your profession, this program will leave you enlightened.
