About this event

Due to Covid-19, the Ministry of Justice has issued guidance on new rules for witnessing Wills remotely. The new rules introduce video conferencing technology as an alternative to the will maker and witnesses being physically present when a Will is signed.

There are some advantages with video wills but there is also significant scope for fraud and undue influence.

This webinar will look at how and when video wills can be safely conducted.
