The Oxford Fintech & Legaltech Society (previously "Fintech & SmartLaw Society", FSS) was founded in 2017 by a group of Master's students in Law and Finance to discuss the impact modern technology is having on banks, financial institutions, legal services, and regulation. The Society aims to foster and develop education, research, community, and innovation in the field of financial and legal technology.
Our past events have included workshops on crypto-currencies and smart contracts, and panel discussions with academics and industry professionals in the fintech and legaltech industries. We also provide opportunities for aspiring students to meet and network with experts and alumni, provide interdisciplinary start-up and hackathon opportunities with like-minded students in computer science, finance or law, and help prepare for careers in corresponding fields. We have recently taken research initiatives to explore the impact of blockchain technology on the financial market infrastructure and regulations.
We are involved in a wide range of activities including seminars, workshops, HQ treks, recruitment and networking events.
