UCalgary students win FinTech writing program competition

The competition is hosted by the Banking & Finance Law Review

The Law Student FinTech Writing Program builds on the BFLR’s Annual FinTech Issues and a proud history of over 35 years as a leading forum for discussion of financial law developments in Canada and around the globe. The Law Student FinTech Writing Program aims to generate interest in the intersection of financial law and technology among Canadian law students (LLB or JD) by promoting and recognizing student research in this cutting-edge field of law. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of experts in FinTech law, who will determine the top submission and honourable mentions for papers placing second and third.

Duncan Pardoe, JD'22 won the competition with his paper "The Merits of Token Capital Raises." Current 3L Mickey Bracey won second place with his paper "Regulation of Privacy Coins."
