    I am certainly interested in this training, but was a bit surprised to see "notaires (lawyers)", as they are, I believe, notaries rather than the people to use if you expect legal advice in the event of litigation, who would be "avocats".

    Thanks for your comment.
    Notaries can give advice (but not represent clients in court) on various matters such as conveyancing and can simultaneously act on behalf of both parties
    Avocats can only represent one party whilst litigating in court
    I hope very much that you will join us at the webinar later today.
