What's wrong with notaire


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmineHadji1

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.
