Im studying to become a lawyer, though after almost a year into the studies, im starting to notice the complete amoral attitude which is taken by the legal profession.
Most people are in it for money or pride. The amount of idealism is next to zero.
There are several classmates and teachers that expresss admiration for defense lawyers who could defend any serial killer or worse.
Imo the further the faculty of law strays from moral teachings the further society degenerates...
When I was in law school, a generation ago, I saw a flyer for free pizza and a talk about volunteering on a post-conviction project. I was a first year law student so I didn't know what that meant, but I assumed it was something about helping crime victims after their attacker was convicted. Well, I was surprised to find out it was all about trying to overturn convicts' convictions.
