Sorta a legal question regarding web forms. Is it possible to get around having a signature by using a "I Agree" check box when filling out a form online? For example if I wanted to sign my kid up for Baseball or something I would typically sign under some kind of disclaimer. So would a check box serve the same purpose?

I dont see why not, as long as you make sure that the disclaimer is visible to them and that they know what they are liable for etc etc. It would be like when you install software and they come up with a "Terms & Conditions" statement that you have to click on "I agree....." in order to move on. Just make sure the person signing up is aware of the terms / conditions and state that by clicking on the "I agree" checkbox, they are pretty much signing the form.

I am not a lawyer either but I do manage a web site for a church. They use a combination of on-line and paper forms.

They have an on-line form that parents and guardians can use to sign up their kids for a one week summer program. That only reserves their child a spot in the program. They still need to fill in and sign a paper copy of medical release form for each child. That form must be turned in the first day of the program or the child is not admitted. A PDF version of the form that they can print out is provided on the site or they can fill out and sign a copy of the form the first day.
