One of the problems with our society is that you can buy justice, in that the better your lawyer is, the more likely you'll do well in our justice system. But frankly, I can't really think of a better system. I mean, people should be allowed to choose who they work for, as well as who they hire as lawyers. And I believe in allowing supply & demand to determine market prices.
While I can think of some heavyhanded solutions which could solve this problem, I can't really see any of them being implemented. And even if we succeeded in giving people equal justice, we'd just force the lawyers into back allies, giving advice on the legal blackmarket.
I had written a much longer post, but decided it wasn't worth it. So I'm only leaving this. Hope you're not too disappointed.
