Advocacy is an art and a lawyer is an artist who defends his legal, moral and professional duties in the society and develops a culture of rights. The lawyer pledges with his conscience not to deviate from the path of nature and makes a pact with the client to defend him and to the community of jurists and lawyers they pledge to abide by the law and consider fair treatment.
