    Default document for legal representation

    Dear Teachers,

    I'd like to know the name in English of the document a person has to sign in order to be legally represented by an attorney in court. I don't mean the agreement between the client and the attorney, but the document the attorney has to present at court proving that he/she legally represents that client. Is it "judicial power of attorney"? Or something else?
    Tks

    As far as I know, a solicitor or barrister does not have to have any such document in Britain.

    There is no such document required in the US. If a person is charged with a crime and cannot afford an attorney the court may assign a Public Defender (an attorney who works for the state) to the case. There may be some paperwork involved here but usually the Public Defender will appear in court and let the court know that he/she has been assigned to the case.
