Practice notes

This Practice Note explains what a smart legal contract (or smart contract) is and provides a summary of the Law Commission’s advice to UK government which concluded that the current legal framework in the UK is able to facilitate and support the use of smart legal contracts. It includes a breakdown of the legal principles surrounding the formation, form, formality and interpretation of contracts under UK law, and provides a comparison between the way in which those principles are applied traditionally and the way in which the Law Commission say they could apply to the main types of smart legal contract.
