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.
