LSO solicitors are prevented by their professional rules from administering an oath or affirmation, or making a statutory declaration, where either they themselves or the University have any kind of interest in the matter.

None of the LSO solicitors are notaries. If a notarisation is required in the course of University business, we can arrange for a local notary to act for you, but your budget will need to cover the fees (which can be significant, particularly if there are several documents, or if an apostille is needed). The LSO cannot act for University staff in their private capacities.

We do not offer a service of certifying documents or photographs in connection with individuals' private or personal affairs (e.g. someone wishing to obtain a passport).
