Engager = To engage
Dans = In
Les Circonstances = Circumstances

This pops up often in French law documents I've seen, but of course, people with expertise in law can chime in.

Example sentence(s):
  • "...que, par suite, la faute ainsi commise est de nature à engager dans les circonstances de l'affaire."

neutral  FX Fraipont: You skip the end : "la faute ainsi commise est de nature à engager dans les circonstances de l'affaire la responsabilité totale de cette collectivité publique". If you put a full stop after "de l'affaire", it is absolutelty meaningless in French.
