What effect does digitalisation have in the legal and notary sectors?
How has the experience of users in these areas changed with e-government? And what will be the role of cash payments in an increasingly digital context? 
The concept of "materiality" has been the foundation of rights and values for centuries. However, this notion has been challenged with the advent of digitalisation, pushing society into a new dimension. It is imperative that we take a forward-thinking approach to examine current and future trends while also acknowledging our past and origins.
