No thats fair enough thats not a personal attack thats an attack of an opinion - sorry it all got a bit heated these threads aways do!
You have to bear in mind that while you may believe I have a skewed view, you have to accept the possibility that it's your view, for what ever reason, that is skewed. It's also possible we are both wrong.
Some people believe that the law is an ass because most of the time it tows a line that suits no one completely. It's why I firmly believe in the adversarial system of government and of the courts. Although lets not give either of our opinions much credit on the objectivity front.
As for not entering the legal profession due to one's own personal views - I wouldn't worry about that too much. Its politics you want to be worried about! I'm not sure what leads you to believe that the majority of the legal profession are what you might refer to as liberal though!
