Department of Education Resolution nº1315/1992 and 911/2003.
Degree: Escribano (Notary Public.)
Length: 4 years.1

A notary public is legally empowered to witness, attest, or certify the validity of documents or acts, having a compulsory intervention in important legal and commercial acts and transactions, like trading and service agreements; deeds; societies of any kind; trust funds; powers of attorney; and wills among others. They are also in charge of the public recording or registering of certain acts and deeds.


Our undergraduate and graduate programs are characterized by a seriousness conveyed in the course rendering, including written works by their prestigious professors, after conducting a long and deep survey about the faculty members.  

The courses that are common to the attorney-at-law and notary public programs are simultaneously rendered by the same professors to both program cohorts, thus, students are able to change their professional option in any instance. Thus, the notary public graduates with the same academic training, at least regarding these common courses, an attorney-at-law has.
