Course overview

The recent increase in value of cryptoassets as an investment class along with media coverage associated with high profile large investors has resulted in regulators warning investors to be cautious of the associated volatility risk. Against the background of these recent developments, we're seeing increasing demand for legal advice in this area.

This short mini-series of three pre-recorded training sessions serves as an introduction to the regulation of cryptoassets in key jurisdictions and is intended for those without prior experience in this area.

Crypto Boot Camp will cover:

  • Session 1: A primer on the basics of crypto, including how we got to where we are, how crypto works, use cases and types of cryptoasset, key infrastructure and related considerations
  • Session 2: A panel discussion on crypto regulation in the EU, Switzerland, the UK and the USA
  • Session 3: A panel discussion on crypto regulation in APAC jurisdictions, covering Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand

You are encouraged to view Session 1 before viewing Sessions 2 and 3. If you have any questions regarding these trainings, please contact Emma Dunbar.

Please note: the high-level guidance provided in these sessions is not intended to be comprehensive legal advice.
