The use of Online Wills in bequest fundraising has grown significantly in recent years. 

While there is a lot of exciting opportunity with this emerging technology, there are also ongoing questions about the validity of Online Wills, including how they have been accepted by the legal industry and how charities can mitigate common risks and concerns.

In this session, Safewill’s CEO Adam Lubofsky, and the Principal of Safewill Legal, Isabelle Marcarian take you through the legality of online Wills, including how they are prepared, how they stack up against other Will writing options, and how Charities can safely integrate online Wills into their bequest strategy. We will also deep dive into the first Court case to deal with online Wills in Australia, a 2022 judgment involving a Safewill Will which addressed how online Wills fit into modern estate law.
