Vorys partner Beth Weinewuth hosted a webinar for the The Marvin R. Pliskin Advanced Probate and Estate Planning Seminar titled "Adventures of an Online Notary: A Practical Perspective on Becoming and Serving as an Ohio Online Notary."

When Ohio’s Notary Modernization Act became effective in September 2019, online notary services seemed something of a novelty rather than an essential service. One year later, the landscape has dramatically changed. But what does it really take to become an Ohio online notary? How does the online notarization work? This presentation provided an essential overview of the process, concrete examples and demonstration of the technology used, and discussion of the benefits and drawbacks of the current statutes and regulations governing online notarization in Ohio.
