With the 21st century’s advanced adoption of digitalisation in all sectors of the Malaysian economy and governmental administration including the judicial system, a better and more efficient software system should be adopted. Blockchain technology is a sophisticated set of combined technologies that would create a decentralised distributed ledger for transactional records. This decentralised and imputable nature of blockchain will be able to address various traditional challenges faced by numerous legal systems.
The objective of this seminar is to enhance awareness and understanding on the adoption of blockchain technology, its mechanics, and unique features that render it immutable and trustworthy. This seminar will also explore the numerous applications of blockchain technology in the legal systems such as the creation of immutable records of court documents, criminal history records, arrest and search warrants’ register and electronic evidence. In the very near future, it will be unavoidable that blockchain technology will be adopted into the Malaysian legal system as it has already been adopted by some legal jurisdictions.
