Welcome to the World Legal Summit Cape Town! 

Date: August 1, 2019

Time: 08:30 – 16:00

This first part of the WLS is designed to bring disparate jurisdictions together in collaboration around building a better understanding of what is happening with technology regulation and governance world-wide. Cape Town will bring a unique viewpoint to the discussion, focusing on the legislative and governance structures in the city and more broadly across South Africa.

This year the WLS is focusing on three main categories: 

  • Identity and Personal Governance 

  • Autonomous Machines

  • Cyber Security and Personal Data

Watch out for your city’s local projects! These will be projects your host is passionate about and that the local community cares about. It will be an opportunity for you and your community to further progress these projects, in a globally collaborative environment.

Collaborate with us and the global community to further the understanding of legislative and regulatory frameworks. These frameworks are enabling the sustainable development of emerging technologies and your input is important!
