    While the new year is already not so new, this is related.

    I read a tip today that in 2020, we should be extra careful in writing the date on legal documents. If the date is written as say 3/1/20, it could be changed to 3/1/2029 or whatever, possibly invalidating the document.

    I don't know if this is just a furphy or a real legal tip.

    Any thoughts from the legal people?

    I think it’s good advice anyway. Now if only the Americans would sort out their mm/dd to be consistent with the majority of humanity (ps. The Chinese have it perfect, yyyy-mm-dd. So much better for computer files....)

    @geoffw yes this piece of advice has been going around to warn others because potentially, leaving dd/mm/20 can be vulnerable to fraudulent act. Especially when signing and dating documents.
