A veteran entrepreneur and technology lawyer with over 15 years of experience specializing in cross-border transactions, data compliance, and regulatory matters more broadly, Jamilia Grier is the founder and chief executive officer of the firm training and consulting firm ByteBao. She also hosts the Barely Legal in Web3 podcast.
She chats with Regulatory Ramblings host Ajay Shamdasani on how to best conceptualize the ever-growing topic of Web3 and what it means to be a lawyer in an age of swift and profound technological innovation. They also discuss the pervasiveness of technophobia in the legal profession – particularly amongst practitioners of earlier generations – as well as the implications of generative artificial intelligence (AI) platforms such as ChatGPT for the profession. They conclude with their conversation with the metaverse and what it means for contract terms, IP issues, transfers of digital property, and NFTs – as Jamilia tells us: it is all connected because the law truly is a seamless web.
