Lawyers act according to what their clients ask or permit them to do. If it's unIslamic, a religious lawyer should advice the client. If the client refused, the lawyers can withdraw himself to represent the client.

If all Muslims dont want to be a lawyer, who would defend/advice Muslims in Court?

Regarding to my country, it's not a lawyer's or judge's duty to Islamize a secular law charge. So it's not haraam. Furthermore, the duty of Advocates & Solicitors in Malaysia is to advice the client regarding to procedures, charges, punishments etc. There's no Hudud Laws (Islamic Criminal Laws) in Malaysia.

Before 1980, only 10% of the lawyers are Muslims, now it's 50%. Thanks to International Islamic University Malaysia for producing 1,000+ Muslim lawyers per year.

In Legal world, lawyers wont call it lies, they call it 'excuses'. But telling lies are bad and many lawyers did it. But not all.
