Need A Commissioner for Oaths is a person appointed by the Lord Chancellor with power to administer oaths or take affidavits. All practising lawyers have these powers but must not use them in proceedings in which they are acting for any of the parties or in which they have an interest.
The Oxford English dictionary describes a Commissioner for Oaths as:
"a solicitor authorized to administer an oath to a person making an affidavit."
However, this definition is fairly misleading as it suggests that only solicitors are Commissioners for Oaths. This is not the case, with the following professions who are also professionally qualified lawyers are also able to perform the functions of a Commissioner of Oaths:
Notary Public, Solicitor, Barrister, Ilex Legal Executive, CLC Lawyer -Licensed Conveyancer
