Smart Contracts for Insurance

Smart contracts technology has great potential to impact positively upon the design, formation and performance of insurance contracts. This lecture will explore potential uses of the technology within the insurance space and deal with legal issues that arise as a result, including both private law issues and regulation and compliance issues.
