It is not often that notaries resign or retire, but there will be two open positions this year — one in Luxembourg City and one in Clervaux.

Notary Emile Schlesser, whose office is based on Rue Notre Dame, is retiring as of 1 September. In Clervaux, notary Martine Weinandy will also be leaving her position on 1 July.

Those interested in the positions can contact the Ministry of Justice by the last week of March to express an interest.

The number of notaries distributed throughout Luxembourg's cantons has been set at 36 for the last 25 years. There are 13 throughout the canton of Luxembourg City, and only one in Clervaux, which will now be open to new notaries.

The law dictates that notaries can work until the age of 72, unless they are dismissed or they resign.
