Values in public law – Chief Justice James Allsop AO

James Spigelman Oration 2015, 27 October 2015, Sydney.

Not worth the paper they’re not written on? Executing documents (including deeds) under electronic documentation platforms: Part A – Diccon Loxton

This article examines the growing phenomenon of signing documents electronically through cloud-based platforms, and is in two parts. This Part A describes the process and concludes that documents signed in that way can generally satisfy requirements for signing and writing, not only when electronic transactions legislation is applied, but also under general law. Part B will conclude that documents can be signed in that way under s 127 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). It will also conclude that where electronic transactions legislation applies one can have effective electronic deeds. Where they would not be effective, then print-outs can be effective as signed original hard copy counterparts.
