It is a vocational and complex profession
Being a notary impresses character
In the introduction I said that being a notary is a profession of character. That it is a vocational and complex profession. I think that is a good summary
Among all legal professions, the notary is the one that is closest to people, their families and companies.
The notary is involved in all facets of private law on a day-to-day basis. He is an enforcer of the law and an authority, as a public official.
What it authorizes by that fact produces important judicial and extrajudicial effects in the legal traffic.
A notary assumes a great responsibility and at the same time has great visibility. Much more than any other civil servant. In addition, he manages the notary's office. To the two facets established by the notarial legislation, -public official and professional-, by reason of the latter, must be added the knowledge and application of business criteria in their day to day work.
A profession with many edges.

The notarial function is a real journey through private law.
Presence and immediacy, -orality-, is consubstantial to the notarial function. For this reason, the pandemic was a hard test. Being restricted the activity to only the most urgent matters, the physical presence in the notary's offices was maintained.
