Founded in 2017, the Codex Stanford Blockchain Group is on a mission to bring together researchers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and technologists who advance the frontier of legal technology. Excited by new enabling technologies that promise to bring efficiency, transparency and access to legal systems for everyone, the Group believes that Blockchain technologies will have a significant impact in the field of law, both as legal infrastructure for technology-mediated economic and social activity and as a technology that can improve access to legal services.
The Group’s mandate is to research and publish informed perspectives around the blockchain ecosystem, track, guide and influence policy and regulations in this space, and become an inclusive, neutral forum for regulators and policy-makers to convene with academics, professionals, and technologists across Stanford and the wider Blockchain community, while its initial focus will be in the areas of regulatory frameworks and ethical standards around token generation events (also known as ICOs or Initial Coin Offerings), legal issues and opportunities presented by blockchain technologies and their intersection with existing legal frameworks, smart contracts and governance design for token ecosystems, and legal empowerment and legal services use cases for blockchain technologies.
