In spring 2021, the Institute for Civil Law and the Institute of Computer Science will hold an
interdisciplinary seminar on the topic “Distributed Trust and Blockchain”. Students of computer
science and law will work closely together on questions concerning the blockchain and its potential
in the legal domain. The goal of the seminar is to explore how the characteristics of
blockchain technology can support the transfer and enforcement of rights.
Participants will work in interdisciplinary groups and relate their work to practical problems that
arise when regulators and practitioners aim at digitalizing the legal world. In doing so, participating
students will hopefully design and discuss truly innovative concepts for issues that have
arisen or may arise in practice when creating, transferring or enforcing rights in real-world scenarios
such as collateralizing assets or dealing with securities.
