prout patet per recordum

What is prout patet per recordum?

prout patet per recordum is one of Latin legal terms, literally translated to ‘as appears in the record’. Definition and use: Used to cite something that has already been admitted into the record. It was frequently used in pleadings, generally abbreviated “prout &c.”, to indicate that a fact was supported by documentary evidence. Failure to use this phrase correctly could be a fatal defect and so cause a case to fail.
