Can I work as a law practitioner?

Q: I am a law student and after my studies I want to practice law in UK want to practice 
civil law, land law and in necessity criminal law.what is the ruling on it?

                                الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب

A: Permissibility of practicing law depends upon the permissibility of the activity performed by 
the practitioner of law.  
For example, in criminal law if one represents one who is guilty of an offense one cannot argue 
his innocence if one knows of his guilt.  To do so would amount to injustice.  
Equally, if one represents a client in civil law to procure a right that the client does not rightfully 
have then that is not permitted.  The work of a practitioner of law 
should be to uphold truth, righteousness and justice.  It should not in any way uphold falsehood, 
sin or injustice.
