"The lawyer is going to the courthouse."
Translation:L'avocat va au tribunal.
notaire = notary/solicitor. They also study law, but they have completely different prerogatives than lawyers.
Une notaire is closer to the British and Australian "solicitor" - someone who can draw up legal documents and can help collect legal info for a court case but only a "barrister" → un avocat, can present the case in court.
