So much discussion has been happening in Jukistopia regarding the role of lawyers. Nonetheless, the indications are that A good lawyer should not have a soul. Good lawyers, defense or otherwise exaggerate, lie and scandalize their opponents and witnesses. All in the name of protecting the justice system as taught just before being called to the bar (a bar you just walk in and order, you don't wait to be called).
The only thing I can understand about a man or woman who kept a despot in power, helped protect ill gotten wealth until nothing can be recovered, and later kept the despot away from the gallows, is that he or she had no soul.
