For those in Law School and/or those Trial Lawyers already in their careers.
I am ever so far from an L1 but always pondered the following situation.
One thing I was wondering, is there a line to be drawn when handling cases? I assume that your one and only goal is to help your client win in the court of law.
How would you/do you handle cases where you know your greedy client is truly on the wrong side and has no business taking a case to court other than to acquire money from a clearly innocent defendant.
What do lawyers do in this situation, knowing that there truly is a way to "screw over" the other party?
While the fate of the case is in the hands of the jury, but with clever persuasion, do lawyers in fact take it to the table, find a work-around, and throw their morals out the window?
PS If it is common practice to leave your conscience aside, then I stand corrected.
