[IPAC-List] A reason to be happy we are not lawyers

I just ran across this in a law review journal about:
"How to Ethically Discredit the Truthful Witness”

"the defense attorney’s dual roles … The first goal ... search for the 
truth.  However, this goal can at times be in tension with a second goal 
of the criminal justice system—the goal of protecting the innocent, even 
if that means vigorously defending the guilty and in the process 
obscuring the truth."

The whole article is long and complex, but contains some scenarios 
(starts on page 20, search on "Commonwealth").

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Letter from a Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963.
