Why do lawyers defend for the bad guys?
 
Law is supposed to protect the good guys and punish the bad guys, and lawyers are an important part of justice. Why do they speak for the evil and still get paid for?

Who is the bad guy? Sometimes good guys are falsely accused.

Sorting these people out is the entire point of law.

Because innocent until proven guilty

Because we wouldn't have a balanced justice system if the accused had no representation?...

Law doesn't just protect good guys and punish bad guys, it protects the wrongly accused.

because if everyone accused of committing a crime was punished without having a say, it would be a bull**** system... kinda like the tribunal.

Because if a lawyer can prove their client is innocent beyond reasonable doubt, they have just saved an innocent going to prison.

Because people will do a lot more/worse for money and lawyers get paid pretty well.

Try living on spam one day and then you will understand why people do morally dubious things for cash.
