About the Webinar
Apart from taking the education and office work to the digital platforms, the pandemic has also drastically altered the mode of payment. In just the last few months, we have seen a budding growth of the e-payment companies, and tech giants like WhatsApp have also entered this market. This trend is also supported by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, the prices of which are reaching the all-time-high. These unparalleled circumstances have created new legal challenges.
To discuss some of these pressing issues, the Law and Technology Society, NLSIU brings to you a webinar on ‘Digital Payments and Legal Challenges’. This webinar is a part of an integrated series which the society plans to conduct in due course of time. The webinar will be held on December 5th, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM IST.
