International Legal Strategy Conference – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Instututo OMG will host the second International Congress on Legal Strategy Conference on July 31-August 1, 2019 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The 2019 conference theme is Smarter Contracts.

Renowned experts, academics, practitioners and thought leaders are invited to discuss how contracts can be used to attain business objectives. A multifaceted approach will guide the discussion, focused on the following dimensions:

  • a) Smart Contracts, Fintech, and Blockchain. How are emerging technologies – like blockchain – changing the way that contracts are negotiated and executed? How can technology help register and manage firms’ contractual frameworks and property rights?
  • b) Behavioral Law and Economics and Choice Architecture. How can behavioral insights guide contractual strategy in order to achieve business objectives? How do behavioral biases, heuristics and cognitive limitations affect decision making in a contractual setting? Using nudges, default rules and other tools to achieve business objectives.
  • c) Contracting Strategy. How can an effective contract strategy be designed and implemented? How are agreements analyzed under law and strategic management?
  • d) Contractual governance. What is contractual governance? How does it add value to the design of the contractual structure for complex transactions? How are contractual networks governed?

Under the framework of CIEL 2019 and in order to stimulate knowledge creation focused on Legal Strategy and Legal Business Intelligence, students, scholars and professionals are invited to submit research papers or case studies related to Legal Strategy.

The papers or case studies must be submitted within the deadlines established in the general guidelines. Once submitted and assessed, selected papers will be accepted for presentation during a special session of the event. Shortlisted papers will published in the conference’s website.
