The Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE) today launched its first edition of the Notaries of Europe Open Days. Some 200 free events for citizens, employees, entrepreneurs, students and the retired will be held in 16 EU countries. Information sessions, conferences and free consultations are planned, with several thousand citizens expected who will have the opportunity to find out about their family situation and property status. The full list of events is available at http://notariesofeurope-opendays.eu.
The Notaries of Europe Open Days are being held as part of the European Day of Justice, a European Commission and Council of Europe initiative celebrated every year around 25 October (more information at http://www.coe.int/t/dghl/cooperation/cepej/events/EDCJ/default_en.asp). The notariats of sixteen EU countries will take part in this initiative: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.
For Mr Paolo Pasqualis, the President of the CNUE, “this initiative is the fruit of a strong partnership with the European institutions. Today, more than ever, our action must be on a European scale. The Europe Day “Notary Open Days” demonstrate the European notariats’ wish to promote access to law for all. We want to meet citizens and make our services available to them, providing advice at every stage of their personal, family and business lives”.
