Law Commission consultation on wills – ILM’s responseNovember 20, 2017
The Law Commission’s consultation on wills closed a few weeks ago, and ILM submitted a response on behalf of our members.
The response was prepared following consultation with our members, and a round table event attended by a cross section of charities and hosted by our corporate partner BWB. You can view our submission here, as well as read our press release here.
You can also check out some of the excellent coverage we had in the media following our submission in the following publications:
We now know that the Law Commission received around 180 submissions with only 10 of these from charities, making it all the more important ILM has contributed on behalf of members and the wider sector.
In our submission, we raised concerns regarding the lack of a more timely discussion re digital wills and the impact online will writing is already having on the sector. We will keep you updated on any progress.
