Faculty and Staff News

Sarah Jane Hughes has had her article entitled “Property, Agency, and the Blockchain: New Technology and Longstanding Legal Paradigms” published as part of a Symposium series in the Wayne Law Review. The article, presented first as the keynote address at the February 2019 Symposium “The Emerging Blockchain and the Law” at Wayne State, explores the need for repetitive considerations of how blockchain technology affects our traditional concepts of property and agency. The article concludes that well-tested norms of property and agency may matter more, not less, when new technologies such as blockchain are used.
