There are one or two general features about the Spanish legal training and provision of
legal services that need pointing out. Firstly there are more that the usual one or two
different types of professional providing legal services: the advocate (abogado),
the procurator (procurador), the notary (notariado) and the registrars (registradores).
Abogados can be referred to occasionally as letrados, and the designation
asesor juridico is also used occasionally. These latter two designations have no
particular significance. The notaries, registrars, judges, prosecutors and state lawyers
are considered public functionaries.
