Presentation of the 4th Notaries of Europe Congress

After the congresses in Rome (2005), Warsaw (2008) and Brussels (2011), Santiago de Compostela will host the fourth Notaries of Europe Congress from 5 to 7 October 2017. The event will bring together over 700 participants, notaries from across the European Union and representatives from the worlds of politics, law and academia, in addition to some 300 partners. Like for the other editions, prestigious speakers will honour us with their presence, helping to make this an unmissable event for the notariat and current European political affairs.

Building EU Law

The theme of the 4th Notaries of Europe Congress is “EU Law at the Service of Citizens”, the aim being to analyse civil and commercial law and make legislative proposals to the European institutions. With the prospect of Brexit and the rise of Eurosceptic political parties in the Member States, 2017 will be a decisive year for the European Union. However, an irreversible process has been set in motion: European integration will not stop. European citizens will continue to live, work, buy property and start businesses in Member States other than that of their nationality. The notaries of Europe must be present to build and continue to build this Europe serving the private interests of citizens and businesses.
