Paper is so 2000 years ago. The next generation client does everything online, including titling assets and designating beneficiaries. Now, they want to make their wills in the same manner. Our panel explores the fun, maybe not too strange, modern world of electronic wills.  They discuss how they are created, witnessed, notarized and probated.  Learn what’s an “original” electronic will, how a testator can revoke it, and what special issues the coming era of electronic wills present practitioners. Best practices and integration into your practice round out the discussion.

Please note that CLE credit is not offered for this program or any Professors' Corner programs.
