A MORAL CONFLICT I consider my decision to be a lawyer as a moral conflict since many of the cases lawyers are consulted with requires them to compromise their personal beliefs Lawyers serve a utilitarian the principle that holds that actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happinessMills p 7 purpose given that they help promote justice in the community On the other hand most of their work may not conform with the utilitarian standards or the deontological attitude the principle that holds that means is valuable than the ends since they are meant to serve their clients interests not the societys One could suggest a solution to this moral conflict by saying If you feel your personal beliefs might be compromised in a given situation just direct your client to another lawyer who feels different about the clients case This may sound simple to any sane mind but in an increasingly competitive business Attorneys dont always have the luxury of choosing their clients based on the morality of their causes On the other hand clients who do have the luxury of choosing their Attorneys are looking for someone to correspond to their interests not to proceed the greater good Further more I considered law most importantly because it is lucrative There are many situations in which a lawyers personal values may conflict with his or her professional responsibilities For instance defending the culpable or indicting the innocent limiting the legal responsibility of a willful and thoughtless polluter using the legal process to wear down competitors or other opponents or affirm a dubious advantage only to conceal a destructive evidence Firstly defending the culpable or the guilty is against my personal and religious beliefs since the bible need me to be truthful as possible as I can Moreover this action is not utilitarian because it brings pain to the most
