     According to Wikipedia, notaries public hold an office which can trace it origins back to the ancient Rome Republic, before Cicero (106-43 B. C.), when they were called scribes, tabellius (writer), or notarius. They are easily the oldest continuing branch of the legal profession worldwide.

     Louisiana notaries public are commissioned by the Governor. They are the only notaries in the United States to be appointed for life. The Louisiana notary is a civil law notary with broad powers, as authorized by law. A commissioned notary in Louisiana can perform and prepare many civil law notarial acts usually associated with attorneys and other legally authorized practitioners in other states. Notaries are NOT allowed to give "legal" advice, but they are allowed to give "notarial advice (explain or recommend what documents are needed or required for certain acts). Notaries are NOT allowed to represent another person or entity in a court of law for a fee.

     The Notary shall, as a government official, serve all of the public in an honest, fair and unbiased manner. The Notary shall act as an impartial witness. Louisiana Law requires two witnesses on most documents, such as a bill of sale, car titles, authentic acts, acts of donation, wills, power of attorneys and other legal documents. The Notary shall require the presence of ach signer and oath-taker in order to carefully screen each for identity and willingness, and to observe that each appears aware of the significance of the transaction requiring a notarial act. Louisiana does not require a seal, but the document may go across state lines which does require a seal therefore it is prudent to affix a seal. The Notary shall seek instruction on notarization and keep current on the laws, practices and requirements of the notary office to develop and promote notarial procedures that deter impropriety, injustice and fraud.
