Abstract

This conference paper looks at how English law could introduce a validating power - allowing the courts to validate a will which fails to meet the formality requirements but shows the testator's true testamentary intentions - and digital wills. The paper draws on lessons learnt from multiple other common law jurisdictions to propose draft legislative clauses.
