How to be a good lawyer

    Posted on August 14, 2016

Русский перевод

Prabhupada: Yes, yes. Because he is following the words of God, therefore he is not different from the words of God. It is practical. Just like a lawyer is not different from the law; therefore he is called lawyer.

Prajapati: But like you were mentioning this morning in class how they are cheaters. They simply say they are lawyers, but instead they are breaking the law.

Prabhupada: Yes. Nowadays, big lawyer means who can tactfully break the law. That is good lawyer. They will find out some flaw in the law and win the case. A man has committed murder — everyone knows — and if a lawyer can save him, then he is a good lawyer. How to nullify the law, he is a good lawyer.

Umapati: We find that our administration and our government is composed of about fifty or sixty percent lawyers.

Prabhupada: Like Nixon.
