Task Force on Digital Technologies

The Task Force on Digital Technologies brings together a wide range of stakeholders to engage on issues involving recently developed and emerging technologies, which have had and will continue to have a substantial impact on various areas of legal practice and policy, as well as on the U.S. and global economies. These issues include, but are not limited to, distributed ledger technology, cryptocurrency, digital assets, non-fungible tokens, artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things and other technologies, collectively referred to as Digital Technologies.

The Task Force works to position the New York City Bar Association to continue to be an important forum and center of excellence to address issues in Digital Technologies for the benefit of City Bar members, the legal community, policymakers, market participants, regulatory agencies, law enforcement and the general public.

The Task Force researches, tracks, analyzes and reports on developments in, and the adoption, uses and implementation of, Digital Technologies within New York and beyond; makes recommendations for market participants and policymakers on best practices and regulatory oversight of Digital Technologies; hosts webinars, seminars, symposiums and other forums and provides other legal educational resources on Digital Technologies; and facilitates discussions among members of the City Bar and the legal community on the use, trends and regulatory landscape of Digital Technologies.
