ETHx: Computational Law + Blockchain Festival

This is an external event to SydEthereum but has been listed here as a lot of members would be interested in it:

The first annual Computational Law & Blockchain Festival (#clbfest2018) is a three-day global event bringing together coders, designers, lawyers, policymakers, researchers, and students to co-create the future of law, legal practice, and policy.

The Sydney node will be hosted by the UTS Faculty of Law at the UTS Hatchery.
