An advocate is a professional or non-professional in the field of law. Different countries’ legal system use the term with somewhat differing meanings. The broad equivalent in many English law–based jurisdictions could be a barrister or a solicitor. However, in Scottish, South African, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Scandinavian, Polish, Israeli, South Asian and South American jurisdictions, “advocate” indicates a lawyer of superior classification.
“Advocate” is in some languages an honorific for lawyers, such as “Adv. Sir Alberico Gentili“. “Advocate” also has the everyday meaning of speaking out to help someone else, such as patient advocacy or the support expected from an elected politician; those senses are not covered by this article.
