Virtual Roundtable | Electronic Wills and Remote Witnessing Legislative Proposal

Event Description

Online registration is closed.  Limited space available. Contact Tram Nguyen at tnguyen@mnbars.org to register.

Remote participation only. Limit to 30 participants.

The Probate & Trust Law Section’s Legislative Committee established the Electronic Wills Subcommittee in 2019 to study electronic wills legislation adopted in other states and the Uniform Electronic Wills Act promulgated by the Uniform Law Commission, and to examine and discuss how these concepts might be beneficial and incorporated into Minnesota law. As a result of that research and discussion, the Subcommittee has proposed legislation that would modify Minnesota statutes to allow the use of Electronic Wills and Remote Witnessing in Minnesota. During this roundtable, members of the Electronic Wills Subcommittee will lead a discussion regarding the proposed legislation. The goal of this roundtable is to educate Section members regarding the Subcommittee’s research on this topic, and to facilitate dialogue and feedback regarding the proposal.
