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.
