Only solicitors with at least seven years’ post-qualification experience are eligible to apply for appointment as notaries public.

Active preparations are underway for Council members to give talks to in-house lawyers and other professionals who may have the occasions to engage the services of Notaries Public. In each talk, the audience will be briefed about the history and functions of Notaries Public. Depending on the response of the relevant professional bodies, there will be at least half a dozen talks by the end of the year.

The Society currently has 394 members, the majority of which have over 15 years post-admission qualification as solicitors. Notaries Public are primarily concerned with the preparation and authentication of documents for use abroad, serving a vital role in international trade.

The current Councilors of the Society are Kenneth Sit (President), Au Miu Po (Vice President) and 12 other Councilors namely, David Beaves, Chan Bing Woon, Chang Lai Shan Eliza, Chu Kuo Fai Gordon, Ella Shuk-Ki Cheong, Hannah C.L. Ha, Andrew Hart, Jesse Kwok Hong Yee, Kwong Chi Keung, Lam Yuet Ming Emily, Rebecca Lo and Ma Ching-Nam.

On 8 September 2020, two proud fellow Notaries Public, Eliza Chang (Councilor) and Eugene Wong (Member), together with Allen Che, swam across the English Channel in slightly more than 13 hours with a distance of 60.15km. An impressive feat that brought pride and admiration to us all, congratulations!
