The Digital Revolution Has Come for Wills: What the Maryland Practitioner Should Know
FD&A attorney, Cory Larkin, will discuss the rapid development of state laws authorizing electronic wills, remote witness attestation, and remote notarization on March 5 at the Bethesda Hyatt Hotel.
About the Program:
For better or worse, advancing technology permeates nearly every facet of modern life - and soon it might obviate the portentous, inconvenient and (sometimes) critically important denouement of estate planning - The Signing Ceremony! Join Cory as he discusses the rapid development of state laws authorizing electronic wills, remote witness attestation, and remote notarization. Cory will also recount key issues that the Uniform Law Commission encountered in drafting a model bill for electronic wills, which is set for release this year, and identify significant risks and opportunities related to electronic wills; and implications for the Maryland estate planning practitioner.
