Are digital signatures legal (UK)?

July 05, 2014

Esign at the UK High Court (England & Wales). A development in esign legal history occurred at the UK (England & Wales) high court. You can read the court judgement, the relevant paragraphs are 39-46.

While this relates to Consumer Credit regulations in particular, we’d like to draw attention to para 45 and the importance of the need for the signature to be in “the space in the document indicated for the purpose”, which should be borne in mind while preparing your document. You can fully edit your PDF and send for e-signing on Legalesign with checkboxes and text inputs for e-signers to complete.
