Witness a document

Can I witness a document?

Members can witness documents, verifying that the signature on the document belongs to the person who has signed it. The usual principles apply that the document must be signed by the signatory in the presence of the witness, that the witness must be unrelated and must not have an interest in the matter.

Fellows and those authorised by CILEx Regulation with practice rights can witness a document as a lawyer and other members can witness a document as an independent and unrelated third party.
