On Wednesday, September 26, notaires will dispense advice in a dedicated carriage of seven selected trains on both legs of journeys between Paris-Marseille, Paris-Lyon, Paris-Strasbourg, and Paris-Rennes. Anyone on those trains with a ticket can head to the car for a meeting. 

Then, on Thursday, September 27, notaires will meet the public at venues in towns a number of towns and cities across the country. Currently, events at cafés and market halls as well as rooms in mairies and the departmental notaires’ chambers in some 40 towns are listed, but more are are expected to be announced in the coming days.
