WEBINAR - CURRENT LAW AND GUIDANCE ON REMOTELY SIGNING AND WITNESSING WILLS DURING COVID-19 Wednesday 21st October 2020 10–11am - this webinar will be delivered using Zoom Web Conferencing - would like to, but unable to, attend?  Not to worry, all pre-booked delegates will be given access to a recording of the webinar to watch in their own time. Speaker:                     Helen Munro SRA Competences: A2, A4, B1, B3, B4 Since the start of the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the number of people wishing to make wills. However, complying with s.9 of the Wills Act 1837 has created problems as regards the witnessing of the will, particularly for shielding or self-isolating testators and there has been considerable discussion in the profession regarding whether or not remote witnessing is already permitted under the existing law.  Further to the Government’s announcement in the summer that it would be introducing temporary legislation to permit remote witnessing of wills using video-conferencing technology, secondary legislation is currently passing through Parliament and is expected to become law by early October.   As Covid-19 cases continue to rise and restrictions on social contact are re-introduced and tightened, in this 1-hour webinar, we will consider the current law and guidance on the remote execution and witnessing of wills. Topics covered include: - The Wills Act 1837 (Electronic Communications) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Order 2020. - Using video-conferencing technology for the signing and witnessing of wills. - Guidance and best practice. - Amending attestation clauses. - Witnessing at a social distance and the clear line of sight rule. - Current rules on electronic signatures and counterpart documents. - Best practice for ‘meeting’ clients during Covid-19.   SPEAKER - Helen Munro qualified as a solicitor at Charles Russell in 1999, specialising in Private Client work. Helen left private p...
