In today’s modern global economy, the need for legalization of documents for use in international transactions is a must. Join us for our live webinar that covers the ins and outs of document authentication and legalization.
This webinar will explore the history, the current state of affairs and the possible future of the legalization process for documents used in international transactions. It will also review the history of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, as well as the impact of technology and the recent pandemic on the procedures required.
Expect to come away with a better understanding of the required procedures for legalization and helpful information for navigating the complexities of the process.
