The Advanced Master in Public Notary Law enables those who have gained the Belgian ‘licence’ degree or Master in Law to further their training in the specific areas related to the profession of a public notary and the requirements of the law on public notaries.
The Advanced Master in Public Notary law is therefore designed to provide students with :
- the necessary training to go on to work as public notaries ;
- the necessary training to go on to work as public notaries’ assistants ;
- the necessary training for those who wish to acquire specialized training in the subjects relating to inheritance law in the widest sense of the term.
There are two reasons for offering an Advanced Master in Public Notary Law : first, the law requires that the profession can only be exercised by those who have obtained the Belgian degree of ‘licence’in Public Notary Law ; second, special training is needed to carry out the activities of a public notary.
The Advanced Master Public Notary Law is therefore a condition of entry to the profession of public notary.
Article 35 of the Ventôse law, as amended by the law of 4 May 1999, stipulates that in order to be nominated as a candidate for a public notary, a degree in public notary law is necessary.
