being a good lawyer is about keeping an innocent person away from prison. It is very very difficult to lie by the way because everything- timings, evidence etc is tested very precisely.
Yes, but a good lawyer will get all that right...

Maybe, I disagree, but I guess you would know better than me since all my knowledge comes froms fictional stories and films

If you really think that's true, go for it, I just don't think being a lawyer is that simple :p:

How would they know that someone else could get a lower sentence? I WOULD get a lower sentence if the person deserved one.
And if he didn't deserve one?

I don't at all. I think it's a very rewarding job, in a similar way to Medicine actually.

I'm not angry at all. I'm also not being unrealistic, it's just that fictional films and novels have a very very warped view of the justice system. Most barristers do their job properly, I know because I've seen quite a few serious court cases. Even if you do get a rubbish barrister who lies and manipulates then the jury are clever enough most of the time to see past that.

You know, I really hope it's as clean as I say too. If it turns out to be a deceptive garbage hole then I don't care if I'm not a 'good lawyer' just because I don't lie and manipulate.
