    We have hundreds of members here on the-mainboard.com. From all walks of life and with backgrounds and careers in things you wouldn’t believe.

    maybe we can use this thread to ask the questions we were always afraid to ask for the fear of being mocked. Questions about life or a certain profession or anything like that. No questions about magnets plz

    example: yesterday, I leaned the nursery rhyme “Humpty Dumpty” was actually about a British cannon in the 1640’s that fell off a ledge and all the kings horses and men couldn’t put that fucking thing back on the ledge. (Maybe idk)

    Science, history, jobs, finance, law, politics, movies, tv, life…anything.


    This isn’t going to go well, is it?

    Lawyers, have you ever been assigned a case where:

    a. You knew your client was in the wrong,
    b. You won the judgment/verdict in their favor anyway,
    c. How did you feel about it afterwards?

    For several years in HS/undergrad, I seriously contemplated pursuing a law degree, but did not think I could handle the above situation professionally. I’m curious about how rare it actually is.

    to answer your question, I think you can find “wrong” and “right” in most cases. In the few cases where I was like, oh yeah my client really fucked that up, then we settled.

    My bro in law defends dirtbags.

    he says that if he wins/gets his guy off, it’s almost always because cops, prosecutors fucked something up or did something shady, tried to cut a corner. So he feels like catching them on that bull shit makes everyone else a little safer from getting railroaded themselves

    it sucks but one of the best things about this country is everyone deserves a vigorous defense. If the prosecutors fuck that up that’s their problem. But the underbelly of the legal system is grotesque.

    On top of this, just ensuring the state meets its burden before it exercises its power to deprive someone of their liberty protects every single person. Even and maybe especially when you're defending a dirtbag

    Representing a scumbag in civil court seems much harder to me than criminal court. But lawyers generally are mostly bought into upholding what little integrity our system has so you can still find your way to justification if you have scruples.

    do it better than he does it with you
    see that its time to move on
