  1. Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions raised on this call. I've started a Contract Law 101 page and will start populating it over the coming weeks.

    I will need lawyers from other jurisdictions to complete the jurisdictional specifics of that page as I will focus on the common law principles of contract law. The Norton Rose paper I linked earlier did provide some comparative law which is an important factor as most, if not all smart contracts are going to be used in a multi-jurisdictional network.

    At this stage, it might be better if I run with this first so other lawyers will have an idea of how much/little detail we need and the type of analysis required to make this relevant to the dev community.

    I don't think there's any value producing a comprehensive overview as there are plenty of materials online so the purpose of the 101 should be limited to flagging the main themes and encouraging people to look deeper into the key issues. If I can get devs to realise the differences between actual contracts and what they call "smart contracts" the 101 would have achieved its main goal.

    If anyone has suggestions for the types of topics they'd like covered, please let me know.

    Sorry I can't make these meetings - I'll be travelling in Europe in May so hopefully I'll find some time to attend then!
