Michael Lightowler Notary Public BrentwoodNotaries in England and Wales comprise the oldest branch of the legal profession whose origins can be traced back to Roman times.

The qualifications required to be admitted to the profession include a degree in law and satisfactory completion of the required course in Notarial Practice, including Roman Law and Private International Law.

Upon qualification the Notary receives a Faculty which provides the necessary authority to practice. This is granted by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury which regulates the profession.

All Notaries are required to have fidelity and professional indemnity insurance and to undertake continuing education.
