DISCUSSION: The author thinks lawyers shouldn’t lie. If they argue a defendant is innocent then they should believe he is innocent, or at least they should believe that he might be (lines 37-41).
- CORRECT. The author thinks a lawyer should never lie about a client’s innocence. See lines 37-41, and lines 24-26.
- No, this is the opinion of the scholars. The author disagrees. See lines 24-26.
- Lines 49-50 directly contradict this. The author does not think lawyers should say whatever the clients wants.
- This would be true if the client were guilty. But some clients really are innocent! In that case, the defense lawyer is serving both client and society by claiming they are innocent.
- Why would this be true? A lawyer might thoroughly research the facts and realize his client is really innocent.
