ABOUT US: Law Consultancy Services (LCS) has worked with and for Notaries since 2004 when the company assisted Notaries administer the compulsory-at-the-time English language test mandated by the government of the day.

The MyNotary Network was established to help the general 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. Over the years, members have come and gone as notaries became more internet savvy.

Now, we still assist notaries to be found and chosen by potential clients. The MyNotary interactive map and sets of mini-web sites are much visited by the general public seeking the services of a notary. Potential clients are ‘pulled’ in via the interesting, expert-led blog topics. Many topics are followed up and expanded upon in the quarterly MyNotaryBlogPlus emailed to members and posted on the private Members Resource pages.


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. More

2021: This year, sadly, we are offering distance and online learning only. Although plans are afoot to host small, interactive group Zoom meetings to simulate the Notaries Now seminars that our regular clients so much enjoy.

I may be interested, please provide more details

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 This year, we had planned a private tour of the Royal Courts of Justice.; and a conducted tour of London’s fabulous Guildhall was in the pipeline.

Accredited CPE Topics for 2021: each programme is accredited for one- and one-half CPE points.

  • Protect your Intellectual Property.
  • Notaries Now: Regulation and Compliance 2021

Non-accredited CPE for 2021:

The topics covered in this, qualifying but not accredited, programme is often the most popular – we tell you (nearly) everything you need to be aware of as a notary. We save you hours of time trawling through reports and web sites, AND we include practical tips about the business of being a notary

How it works: Each programme consists of an online video introduction, comprehensive written notes, with links to further study resources, and a short questionnaire that must be completed and submitted in order for you obtain your CPE points. The notes are supplied in digital format, however for those notaries that prefer, written notes can be, at a small additional cost, posted out.
