MISSION & VALUE ALIGNMENT
The Legal Guild serves as a hub where crypto enthusiasts with an interest in the legal aspects of the field come together to provide the BanklessDAO community with pertinent and accessible legal information. In Season 7, we have revitalized our mission, shifting our focus from simply conducting research to actively leveraging our legal expertise to address the unique legal inquiries of the BanklessDAO community.
We expanded our social media presence to include LinkedIn, alongside our existing Twitter and TW Spaces accounts (join us on Thursday, April 20 at 5 PM UTC for our upcoming TW Space event, where we’ll discuss the legal landscape of crypto in Latin America).
We worked on improving the way we operate within the Legal Guild by reorganizing our roles and increasing transparency. We’re researching the best practices for Web3 projects and creating easy-to-understand onboarding documentation to make joining our community much simpler.
As part of our Season 7 goals, we are excited to introduce “Office Hours” - a new initiative aimed at connecting you with a licensed Web3 lawyer, from the Legal Guild or the Blockchain Lawyers Group, depending on the jurisdiction, who can provide valuable insights on the best path forward for your BanklessDAO project. With just a 45-minute call, you can gain crucial information to help propel your project forward.
The contribution to participate in this program is $75 USD in BANK. However, Guilds will have access to this service as a Public Good, completely free of charge (Typeform Office Hours - BanklessDAO Legal Guild).
MISSION & VALUE ALIGNMENT
At the BanklessDAO Legal Guild, we are committed to providing the BanklessDAO community with timely and accurate updates on legal developments in the crypto space and DAO governance. Although many of our Guild members are licensed attorneys, we warmly welcome anyone with an interest in crypto or DAO legal and regulatory issues to join us. Whether you are an attorney or not, you can be a valuable member of our community. We believe now with our Office Hours, the alignment to the BanklessDAO community will be even greater by providing more resources that will promote the growth of Web3 Projects.

- The Legal Guild has the role of an onboarding specialist which is also developing a document for those looking to join the Legal Guild.
- Here is the list of Active Members based on our Governance Criteria. They have been active both in our Meeting/ Discord, and have also contributed in the Legal Guild projects/activitities/development this Season.
- Social media has also been a platform where we onboard new members, such as in the bDAO in Spanish Newsletter.
Our main focus for Season 8 will be the Office Hours, the roles are shifting their attention and work towards it, this will be a source of funding for the Guild from now on, and a benefit for other Guilds.
We will also continue with our Podcast, activity in Twitter, and Linkedin.
