Online Webinar

Estate Planning in the Digital Age; Florida's New Law on Electronic Legal Documents

Registration Rate:  $125

The “Hot Topics in Elder Law” webinar will discuss the timely topic of Florida's new law on Electronic Legal Documents, as the Governor of Florida has signed House Bill 409, an act relating to electronic legal documents.  The new law provides for electronic wills, electronic durable powers of attorney, and further provides that these and other electronic legal documents may be executed with a remote notary and remote witnesses appearing by videoconference.  How exactly will all of this work?  Florida attorneys need to know the ins and outs of the Electronic Legal Documents law and what it means for their clients and their practices.   

Please join Ben Diamond, St. Petersburg attorney and Florida State Representative, for a review of the key provisions of the law and a discussion of the many issues and questions it presents. 

Login information will be sent to registered webcasters 24 hours before the scheduled webinar using the email address provided on your registration. If you plan to watch the webinar at work, please confirm with your IT department that there will not be a firewall problem in accessing the webinar. The webinar will be broadcast via Ustream.
