E-Signed - and Sealed?

Executing Deeds in the Digital Age

Thursday, 14 June | 11:00am - 12:00pm AEST

Join Tim Perry, Head of Corporate & Shan-Ree Tan, Senior Writer at Practical Law Australia, who will provide you with an up-to-date primer on the valid execution of deeds and documents by individuals and companies.

Arranging for deeds and other documents to be signed is an everyday part of a lawyer's job. But in today's world of virtual signings, electronic signatures and cross-border transactions, it's more important than ever to get the fiddly formalities right, so that when it's time to put pen to paper – or to copy and paste – your documents stay signed, sealed and delivered.

You'll learn about:

  • The common mistakes and misconceptions that can lead to undesired outcomes when executing documents
  • Recent developments in case law and the latest legal scholarship, including relating to the use of electronic signatures
  • The Walrus Committee protocols for foreign corporations

If you hold a current practising certificate and consider this activity relevant to your practice, you can also claim 1 point of substantive law towards your CPD requirements.
