This paper aims to identify the development of the cyber notary concept in the common law and civil law legal systems. This study uses a normative juridical approach. The type of data used in this paper is secondary data. This secondary data was acquired through document studies that were carried out by exploring libraries and the internet to find different library items, including textbooks, thesis/dissertation journal articles, and other library materials. Additionally, the notion of a cyber notary, which emerged from the Common Law System's legacy, has been extensively used in reality. Indonesia, a contemporary nation that belongs to this tradition of nations that follow the Civil Law System, is no exception. The rule of law and developments beyond the law are inextricably linked.
