look up any word, like trill:
Someone who studies or practises Law, usually a member of the legal prfession as either a solicitor or barrister. very often the better lawyers are involved in fighting for Human Rights and Civil Liberties in courts and the academic kind often researches to find out what effects laws are having on real people.

Often insulted by people who don't know how hard work it is and how much the authorities and corporations would trample over their rights if lawyers and the law didn't exist.

A moral/intellectual mercenary. A lawyer will align himself to any cause, and will say anything regardless of truth and logic, provided it makes him money. It falls to lawyers to imprison the innocent and free the guilty.

The job is lower than prostitution.
Lawyer: "My client cannot commit murder, he is insane!"
by cannon_fodder April 02, 2008
An individual who studies the legal system and then applies what he has learned according to his best interests completely absent of moral accountability for these actions. These objectives are achieved by manipulation of ambiguous rules and exploitation of technicalities while the individual is protected by claims or a moral/ethical duty to zealously advocate his or her client's position.
In other words, one who uses the legal system to his or her advantage without having to feel guilty about the results of his actions. For example, the most applauded/rich defense attorneys are not rewarded for seeing that justice is done, but by insuring that it is not.
A lawyer is like a porn star. They're either going to fuck you or get you off.

A bloodsucking leech who thinks he's all that...all in all a fuckhead.
