Electronic and Digital Signatures Online Course: Understanding the Law and Best Practice Training Course

Dublin, Feb. 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Electronic and Digital Signatures - Understanding the Law and Best Practice Training Course" training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Everybody signs documents. In an increasingly virtual world, there are increasingly virtual ways to sign documents - or are there?

Use of electronic signatures rather than 'wet' signatures may be increasingly widespread but the law on the use of these is far from clear as to when it is, and when it is not, allowed. The law is a combination of European legal remnants in English law (the eIDAS Regulation which continues to apply post-Brexit), English statute and the common law. This session will explore the critical ins and outs of this practice, covering practical advice as well as the latest proposals for reform of the law in this area.
