    The creation of the Notarial Law specialization responds to a request from the notarial profession to highlight the specificity of the notarial profession, and in particular to distinguish it from courses leading to the rather concurrent field of wealth management.

    The Notarial Law specialisation is intended to welcome students who have already achieved an excellent course of study and wish to enter the notary's profession by the so-called academic route.

    The latter provides a specially designed training, from the first year of the Master's degree, for the Notariat. It offers the notaries they will become an academic background enabling them to project themselves, in a sustainable way, into a notarial career.

    The integrated training is designed to provide the notaries with a solid foundation for their future career.

    The training includes a strong theoretical and research dimension, the second year being partly devoted to the mastery of computer tools for research. At the same time, and like any notary, the student will be regularly involved in the resolution of cases; an internship of one month (minimum) in the second year allows him/her to grasp the various aspects of the profession.

    The application for entry into the Notary Law Major assumes a strong capacity for work.


    The Notary Law major is primarily aimed at students wishing to become notaries.


    It is also of interest to notaries and their associates who hold an M1 degree and wish to perfect their knowledge of town planning and local authority law.


    This course is open from the 1st year Master's degree.

    Access is conditional on the submission of an application.


    The first year of the Master's degree in Notarial Law is based on the fundamental teachings that are essential for training as a notary, particularly in civil law (matrimonial regimes, successions, special contracts, etc.) and in real estate law (property law, etc.).) and in real estate law (town planning law, construction law, etc.)

    The Parcours Carrière notariale corresponds to the first year of the Diplocirc;me Supérieur du Notariat (DSN).

    The French notarial profession is naturally open to international perspectives.

    This is the reason why international law courses are present, both in the first year of the Master's programme and in the Carriage of Notaries programme in the second year. One or two students from the Shanghai (China) class will be given a one-off internship at the Sino-French Centre for Legal and Notarial Studies.
