In this presentation you will learn “The 4 General Principles of ESIGN” and the difference between UETA and Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN).
Firms that have adopted E-Sign Law and Technology in their practice typically have faster client-engagement times, lower overhead costs, a happier staff, and, most importantly, happier clients.
This E-Signatures Laws and Technology CLE addresses the authentication of scanned and emailed signatures, including scenarios specific to the practice of law. The seminar will give you a survey understanding of laws behind electronic signature laws, including the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act; 15 U.S.C. 96) and Georgia’s adoption of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA; O.C.G.A. Sec. 10-12-1 et. seq). The seminar further discusses the audit technology you should have in place for digitally received signed documents.
Learn what type of documents may be signed electronically (engagement letters, retainer agreements, contracts, certain type of federal documents, and the like) and what Technology you should have in place to allow your clients to receive, sign, save documents with audit trails.
