RAIS Conference Proceedings 2021 from Research Association for Interdisciplinary Studies

Abstract: Today, the prosecutor is a magistrate who has the role of public prosecutor in a trial being the delegate of the prosecutor’s office in court and having the role of overseeing the proper application of the law. At the same time, it must be ensured that the interests of the state are not harmed. The appearance of this institution takes place at the end of the medieval era in France and later imported into other countries in Europe and North America. At the end of the modern era, it can be found in almost every state, but, as we will see, in some places, it has different attributions. This study of synthetic origin aims to show broadly how the institution of the Prosecutor’s Office was born as well as the characteristics that have shaped it over time in the various states that have adopted it. Exposure chronological information is based on information that we find in American and European historiography.
