Over the years, the local notarial districts have set up schools to train young notaries by way of courses taught by university professors, judges and notaries. The goal is not only to prepare students to pass the competitive exam, but to acquire that specific legal sensitivity that should characterise the notary in the exercise of his public function. These are institutions with a long history of proven quality, recognised as such by the National Council of Notaries.
Notarial schools recognised by the National Council of Notaries are present throughout the country. It is not mandatory to attend one in preparation for the competition.
There are also postgraduate specialization schools for the numerically limited legal professions that are open to aspiring notaries, magistrates and lawyers.
