Electronic signatures and witnessing – key recent developments

Recorded on: 25/03/2024

The law on electronic signatures and witnessing has undergone significant development in recent years in the fields of contract law, conveyancing and wills and probate.

Topics will include:

  • Different types of electronic signatures
  • Alterations to the rules on signing and witnessing of wills
  • Electronic signatures accepted by HM Land Registry
  • Validity of e-mailed invoices
  • Admissibility of electronic signatures under ss7-8 of the Electronic Communications Act 2000
