French to English translations [PRO] Law (general)
French term or phrase:avocat enroleur
This appears on a court document - no other context, except that it is in a family law case
Explanation: That's one derogatory term for the type of lawyer who drums up custom by methods that might otherwise be frowned on by the self-esteemingly more respectable members of the profession.
Hard to know what is meant by "enroleur" here though. Maybe it's a lawyer who goes round the schools and universities in a sort of career-orientation endeavour to encourage youngsters to go to a bar of a different kind to what the drunken layabouts are used to.
