What is PROCUREUR

In French law. An attorney ; one who has received a commission from another to act on his behalf. There were in France two classes of procurcurs: Procurcurs ad ncgotia, appointed by an individual to act for him in the administration of his affairs; persons Invested with a power of attorney; corresponding to “attorneys in fact.” Procurcurs ad litcs were persons appointed and authorized to act for a party in a court of justice. These corresponded to attorneys at law, (now called, in England, “so- licitors of the supreme court.”) The order of procurcurs was abolished in 1791, and that of avouds established in their place.
