Digital Signatures


Law and medicine were always the pair: well-respected professions, pathways to middle class (or better!) comfort, and laggards with technology. Whether you went to a doctor’s office or a lawyer’s office, paper ruled the day. But that’s changing. One of the last bastions of “paper is king” is the executed document – “wet” signatures serving as proof that a certain person signed a document. This is a point. Depending on your state, some “wet” originals govern. But, for many transactions, digital signatures have the same full legal effect as “wet” signatures, and they’re more secure to boot. A digital signature platform produces proof of who signed a document and when and where, as well as a “chain of custody” for the document. This seminar explores all things “digital signature” and starts you down the right path for a digital John Hancock.

This course was a great primer on digital signatures and very timely as my employer has recently implemented new digital programs to allow its customers to engage in self-service transactions. I learned a lot and have a much better understanding of digital signatures and which kinds are legally binding. The presenter was well prepared and took the mystery out of digital signatures. He was very informative and the course materials were very helpful.

Excellent course on a topic of interest. Well researched. Just what I needed to know!

Excellent, timely course. Jeff did an outstanding job.

Great topic. The presenter was knowledgable.

Jeff, this was the first time I've seen anyone explain the differences between the various digital signatures and how to use them properly. Thanks,

Great topic. Succinct.

Best CLE ive ever had
