Some 4500 people, participants and exhibitors, met from 5 to 8 June in Nantes, in the Loire Atlantique region, for the 112th Congress of the Notaries of France. “Real estate ownership, between freedom and restrictions” was the topic chosen this year. After three days of debates, around fifteen proposals were adopted, to improve the law and professional practice in the area of real estate. And like every year, these proposals will be passed on to the public authorities.
This 112th Congress also provided the profession with an opportunity to meet up and exchange views over four days, particularly with the 35 foreign delegations present this year in Nantes.
Finally, the Congress is also an unmissable event to take the pulse of policies in relation to justice and access to law, particularly through the involvement of representatives of civil society and economic and political personalities, such as the Minister of Justice. Welcomed by Pierre-Luc Vogel, the President of the Conseil supérieur du notariat, Jean-Jacques Urvoas, the Minister of Justice, in these times of reform of the profession, delivered a speech expressing support that was keenly anticipated by the notaries present in the main auditorium.
The 112th Congress in figures:
• 4 480 participants and exhibitors
• 1 777 notaries present
• 35 foreign delegations
• 140 stands, run by 1 400 people, covered 2 304 m2
