Broad research networks and open-source projects are working their way out from their traditional home in academia and into the legal technology community. Dynamic contract platform provider Clause launched a smart contract consortium, the Accord Project, touting support from the Linux Foundation’s blockchain project Hyperledger, the International Association for Commercial and Contract Management (IACCM) and matter management software company Clio.
