OWNER & FOUNDER 

ABOUT US

Law Consultancy Services (LCS) is a boutique consultancy company owned and managed by Lisa Preuveneers. Lisa has worked with and for Notaries since 2004.

LCS has provided accredited Continuous Professional Education (CPE) since it was first introduced in 2011, mostly in face-to-face seminar format, but also as distance or remote learning.

NEW – A strategic planning-for-growth-and-efficiency consultancy service. Delivered in small-group seminars, privately one-to-one, or undertaken at the notary’s office.

THE MYNOTARY NETWORK 

The MyNotary Network was established to help the public find Notaries across England and Wales willing and able to conduct the test. We provided a template test and guidance as to how to administer it. The notarial profession held a monopoly (for just one year) over the legal requirement to prove – as part of certain visa applications – that the applicant had a sufficient command of the English language.

NOW, We still assist notaries to be found and chosen by potential clients, however, we offer so much more….

Discounts on accredited Continuous Professional Education, additional advice on regulation and compliance matters, background information relating to the Blog topics posted at mynotary.co.uk and distributed to members in our quarterly MyNotaryBlogPlus ‘ezine’. Members also regular copies of  The MyNotaryINFORMER – which together with the contents of MyNotaryBlogPLUS – counts as the required 3 hours of non-accredited CPE study!

CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION.

Since it was first introduced in 2011, Law Consultancy Services has provided accredited continuous professional education (CPE): mostly in face-to-face seminar format, but also as distance learning.

Notaries are required to undertake six hours of study each year with 1 CPE point awarded for each hour of study. Evidence of completion must be supplied to the Faculty Office at Practising Certificate renewal time.

IN THE PAST, we have met at some very interesting places, including HQS Wellington permanently moored on the Thames close to the Inns of Court at Temple Steps. Some seminars were all-day events , others were followed by ‘legally-inspired’ outings where notaries, and not just members of the MyNotary Network, visited, for example, Lambeth Place and the Place of Westminster.

ACCREDITED CPE Topics for 2022:

Face-to-face seminars recommence on Tuesday 23rd November 2021 with the 3-hour, accredited event – “Notarial Inspection & Royal Courts of Justice”. The seminar, taking place in Middle Temple Hall, is followed by lunch and a private tour of the Royal Courts of Justice.
