The Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy is the first law journal to publish on the greater blockchain technology space. It features Articles (peer-reviewed), Essays, and Comments. In conjunction with its print run, JBLP is published here at pubpub.org (MIT Media Lab)—a freely hosted, innovative open access platform.

Edited by a distinguished editorial board of Stanford University and Stanford-affiliated academics and practitioners based out of the CodeX Stanford Blockchain Group, JBLP fills a critical need in the field for a neutral, disinterested, and reputable platform to publish high-quality content and to advance discourse. Our scope spans (but is not limited to) the legal aspects of blockchain tech's and cryptocurrency's current and looming use cases, regulatory and policy ramifications, blockchain governance, and the future of decentralization.
