The title of the thread is absolutely misconceived, demeaning and disrespectful to say the least and has in all probability arisen out of the ignorance of the author about this legal profession. Who is a lawyer? He is a person who is legally qualified and practices law as an aid to the Court and to advance the interest of his client and to solve individualised problems. That being his profession, he is legally and morally bound to appear before the court for his client and advance such arguments and provide such interpretations that would help his client, irrespective of whether one is a criminal or as to what crime he has committed or otherwise. I am not saying that a lawyer is bound to take over a case which he may find to be against his ethics but once he takes over a case, he has to work in the interests of his client.
That having been said, I do admit that there are lawyers who charge more from his clients or back out of a case in between or do not put in sufficient efforts to further the interest s of his client but then such exceptions are there in all type of professions. You may call it unethical but that does not fall within the ambit of corruption. Yes, if a lawyer takes money from both parties and tries to play a different game altogether, one may term it as corruption. But such cases are very, very rare in the field of advocacy.
Ryyu, you are once again advised to be a bit more detailed with your threads so that the reader understands your mind clearly before responding.
