My comment:

Course: Property and legal entity law

“En droit, une personne morale est une entité dotée de la personnalité juridique, ce qui lui permet d'être directement titulaire de droits et d'obligations en lieu et place des personnes physiques ou morales qui la composent ou qui l'ont créée (par exemple : entreprises, associations...). La personne morale et la personne physique sont deux des principales entités pouvant avoir des droits et obligations.”
“La personnalité morale confère à la personne morale nombre d'attributs reconnus aux personnes physiques, comme le nom, un patrimoine ou un domicile. La personnalité morale permet notamment : d'agir en justice, d'acquérir des biens meubles ou immeubles.”

personnalité morale = legal entity OR legal person

“In law, a legal person is any person or 'thing' (less ambiguously, any legal entity) that can do the things an everyday person can usually do in law – such as enter into contracts, sue and be sued, own property, and so on.”

Legal entity refers to anything other than a natural person that can function legally, enter into a contract, sue or be sued, and make decisions through agents. A legal entity, under the law, is responsible for its actions and can be sued for damages. For example, a corporation is a legal entity.
