Dying Matters (www.dyingmatters.org) has teamed up with Certainty to offer members free Will Registration.

Dying Matters is a wide ranging and inclusive coalition which aims to change public attitudes towards death and bereavement in England, encouraging greater engagement on related issues. Will writing and making sure that loved ones can find the Will is an important part of the process. Every year thousands of families cannot find a Will following the death of a loved one.

Dying Matters have produced a newsletter in advance of the Awareness Week 13-19 May and comment as follows: ‘As part of our efforts to encourage more people to make their end of life wishes known, we are delighted to be able to offer all Dying Matter members the chance to register their Will free of charge with Certainty National Will Register.

The initiative is aimed at ensuring that those people who have planned for what happens after they die by writing a Will also register it – so it can be easily tracked down after their death. Many Wills are rewritten or misplaced over the years, and many families don’t know where their loved ones have stored their Wills. A simple solution is offer by Certainty to ensure there is always a record of where the most up to date record is kept and that it is traceable by the family after death’.

Nigel McGinnity, Founder of Certainty, said: ‘We are pleased to be able to contribute to the Dying Matters Coalition by providing free Will registration, which is an important step to ensure that when the time comes, loved ones and beneficiaries will not have the extra anxiety of not knowing where the Will is located’.

Do not fear robot lawyers – fear robot clients

Pulat Yunusov

Tech is famous for its shorter and shorter hype cycles. Robot lawyers were all over the twitters only a few months ago and now people actually yell at you for even mentioning the thing. Of course, robot lawyers should not even have surfaced in the first place because no one is remotely close to building them. Lawyers should not fear for their livelihoods. But there is something that is much more important than robot lawyers. It’s robot clients. Or at least the proliferation of machines, automated transactions, and standardized processes where lawyers once controlled the terrain.
