The dilemma of professional ethics, the dispute between lawyers' commerciality and social justice


Lawyer Huang Baoxue graduated from Shandong University of Economics in 1997. He once worked in a listed company and has been engaged in legal affairs and management for nearly ten years. He has extensive experience in the field of corporate legal affairs. He has acted for dozens of economic, civil and criminal cases in the past few years.

Professional areas: real estate business, corporate legal business, economic disputes, criminal defense, etc.

Practicing philosophy: Lawyers must not only be proficient in the law, but more importantly, solve problems.

Practicing creed: To be a lawyer, you must have a sense of justice, do not win cases that should not be won, and do not lose cases that should not be lost.

A lawyer had just won a major lawsuit, and he immediately telegraphed his client: "Justice has been won." His client called back immediately and eagerly: "Appeal immediately!" This is an old joke about lawyers. Although the joke is short, three baggages are revealed: First, it is not the righteous party that wins; second, the parties are most concerned about and only care about the result, regardless of justice or not, third, the interests of the parties are the justice pursued by the lawyers. The first two issues have nothing to do with lawyers or have little to do with lawyers. The third burden is the professional ethical dilemma about lawyers’ value orientation, also known as the dilemma of lawyers’ commerciality and social justice: when the interests of the parties conflict with social justice , Should lawyers maximize the interests of their clients, or should they pursue social justice as their responsibility?

Under an ideal structure, the two should be unified. "Lawyers should safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the parties, safeguard the correct implementation of the law, and safeguard social fairness and justice." In reality, however, such conflicts are lurking in all cases. "Formal contradiction" is like the two sides of a coin. Two parties dispute their interests. When one party is on the side of lawfulness and justice, the other party must stand on the side of injustice. Lawyers can only choose to stand on the side of one party. Therefore, the interests of the parties are The struggle with social justice is bound to happen. This difference in position has also attracted two radically different positive and negative evaluations of lawyers from the society, which can be described as mixed.

1. The first thing that any profession solves is the problem of livelihood, except for the saint who likes to live a life of "one meal, one drink, in the back alleys, people are overwhelmed, and will never change their happiness". Lawyers generate income by providing legal services to their clients. They have a contractual and commercial relationship with the clients. Since they are contractual relationships, they should be honest and trustworthy. Since they are entrusted to the clients, they should be loyal to them and seek in the existing institutional framework. The way to maximize its benefits. The commercial nature of the lawyer profession inevitably requires that the value guide of the lawyer profession is to maximize the interests of the parties. Only by maximizing the interests of the clients can the commercial value of the lawyer profession be reflected. There is no doubt that lawyers aim to maximize the interests of the clients. "Lawyers must protect the legitimate interests of the parties" is just a beautiful assumption under the ideal of the law. Careful scrutiny hides a logical error in it. Just like the "innocent assumption" theory, since "the lawful judgment of the people's court is not allowed to anyone Determined to be guilty". So what is a legitimate interest must be defined by the final judicial decision, because the function of a lawyer is not to assist the court in discovering the truth of the case. When accepting an entrustment, the lawyer can only know the case through his own party. The function of the lawyer is to act as the spokesperson of one party, innately standing. From the standpoint of one's own party, he is not the ultimate judge. If what he strives for is not the maximization of the interests of the parties, but the legal rights or social justice, shouldn't he go on his behalf and confuse himself with the judges? How can we win the trust of the parties by putting social justice above the interests of the parties? Therefore, lawyers seek to maximize the interests of the parties. It is the basic social value and prerequisite for the existence of the lawyer profession.

2. Lawyers must maintain social fairness and justice. This social responsibility is a mission entrusted to lawyers by the law and a "red hat" that distinguishes the lawyer industry from other industries. Fairness and justice is the "backer" behind lawyers---the core value of the law. Lawyers use this to win the trust and respect of the public. Maintaining social fairness and justice is the expectation of the public. Social fairness and justice can be called the "backbone of lawyers." Lawyers maintain social justice from the perspective of the lawyer profession as a whole, so the "backbone" may not be related to the "economic foundation" of individual lawyers, but It is related to the social status and future development direction of the legal profession. Without a "backbone", lawyers will lose social credibility and social respect, and lose a good social image, leading to the low social status of the overall lawyer industry, the marginalization of the industry, and even the "lower" industry in society. If lawyers stay away from or abandon fairness and justice to pursue the interests of the parties, they will use all means in order to win the case, or even "do everything they can", and they will only quench their thirst by drinking a dove.

Third, lawyers cannot make a choice between the interests of the parties and social justice. This conflict is also the cause of professional ethical dilemmas. Lawyers can only find a balance between the two. Because the conflict between the interests of the parties and social justice cannot be resolved by lawyers, it is impossible to maintain substantive justice if it is understood that “lawyers are not the ultimate judge”. Then the source and resolution of such conflicts will become clear, and this balance is procedural justice. In the balance of procedural justice, the conflict between the interests of the parties and social justice can be fairly put to the final judicial judgment. "Justice must not only be achieved, but also achieved in a visible way." What lawyers maintain is only the "visible way." Lawyers’ methods and methods for maximizing the interests of their clients should always remain within the legal channels and within the legal framework. Maximize the interests of the parties on the premise that they are legitimate and sensible in accordance with the public interest of the society. Therefore, the social justice maintained by lawyers is procedural justice, or lawyers achieve substantive justice indirectly by maintaining procedural justice. Lawyers are not the ultimate judge, and lawyers cannot directly maintain substantive justice. "When there is a conflict between procedural justice and substantive justice, lawyers are neither the angels of justice nor the evil devil. Lawyers do not represent any party. All lawyers have to do is to participate in the entire judicial process through the procedures prescribed by law and use themselves. Professional knowledge to realize and embody the justice value of procedure." Lawyers should adhere to a professional ethical principle that "does not necessarily serve substantive justice, but must obey procedural justice". In any case, as long as one party's lawyer is on the side that violates the substantive justice, the other party's lawyer must be on the side that conforms to the substantive justice. If lawyers are regarded as advocates of noble morals who pursue the justice of social entities, the profession of lawyers will lose the value of existence, and the defense required by this profession cannot be realized, because it is impossible to be a advocate of noble morals. Make a legitimate defense with the party representing the entity's justice.

Of course, the defense of social justice by lawyers is supplementary and limited, and it is the public, procuratorate, and law and other state agencies that play a decisive role in maintaining social justice. However, the lawyer system is also the basic system of a society under the rule of law. As an indispensable part of a society under the rule of law, lawyers and the legal profession need to grow and develop. Therefore, on the arduous and long road to the rule of law, lawyers need to be commercial to build a “material for growth”. "Foundation" needs to come from the spiritual power of social justice.

Immigration Tips

1. The difference between green card and nationality. Obtaining the nationality of a certain country is equivalent to becoming a citizen of a certain country and obtaining the same rights and obligations as citizens of that country. The green card is equivalent to maintaining Chinese nationality and having the right of permanent residence in a certain country. It is a document that allows permanent and legal residence. The only difference between a country’s green card and nationality is that the green card does not have the right to vote and stand for election in this country, and the rest of the rights are the same. Therefore, most Chinese entrepreneurs who emigrate choose only to obtain a green card, because China does not recognize dual citizenship. If you only obtain a green card from this country, you will retain your Chinese nationality and you can live in and leave the country freely. However, if you join the nationality of this country, it is equivalent to giving up your Chinese nationality, and you must go to the Chinese embassy in that country for a visa every time you return to your country. 2. Why emigrate? Generally speaking, the external incentives for immigration: better investment environment, more business opportunities, high incomes abroad, better climate and environment, better medical care, better free education, Political stability, social stability, and high social welfare. Domestic impetus for immigration: political risks (naked officials, entrepreneurs’ criminal liability risks), environmental pollution risks (air, water, food safety, life expectancy, high mortality, increased terminal illnesses), social security, war risks, high living cost. High added value of immigrants: choose a safer, happier and more convenient life. Worry-free life brought about by high welfare. Choose a higher quality and free education for the children. Found new investment opportunities. Escaped domestic political and legal risks. It is convenient to go abroad. The continuous appreciation of the renminbi brings the best opportunity for overseas investment.

Canadian Investment Immigration, Federal Projects Closed

Time of issue: : 2014-02--17
Recently, a piece of news about Canadian immigration has stirred up waves in the immigration market. The Canadian government will end the 28-year-old investment immigration project, shattering the immigration dream of 50,000 Chinese. Is the hope of investing in Canadian immigration really dashed? Is there any other way to immigrate to Canada? The reporter visited Mr. Cui Guanjun, the director of the first law firm in Zibo City that provides foreign-related legal services and immigration services on current hot issues. , He pointed out: The one-size-fits-all Canadian investment immigration program refers to the Canadian federal investment immigration program. There are many types of Canadian immigration. In terms of investment immigration, in addition to federal investment projects, Canadian provinces also have their own investment immigration projects. At present, the projects nominated by these provinces have not been affected, and the immigration quotas of some provinces have increased, even Record breaking, such as the Saskatchewan nomination program. Due to the closure of the Federal Investment Immigration Program, these immigrant applicants will quickly transfer a large number of them to the provincial nomination programs in search of more secure immigration investment projects. Take the corporate investment immigration project nominated by Saskatchewan as an example. After the 2013 Saskatchewan corporate immigration application was opened, less than 2 weeks, the application quota was emptied. Among them, Chinese applicants account for about 80%, and the application status is extremely hot! Regarding the difference between the Canadian federal investment immigration and the investment immigration nominated by each province, Director Cui Guanjun replied: Under normal circumstances, the investment immigration threshold nominated by each province will be lower than the federal investment immigration threshold, or more conditions. Loose. For example, the aforementioned entrepreneur investment immigration project nominated by Saskatchewan has the advantages of low asset requirements, low investment amount, and no language requirements. Applicants only need to prove assets of 300,000 Canadian dollars, and invest 150,000 Canadian dollars to establish or acquire a business, and then the whole family can immigrate and share the quality of life in Canada with their families. Another example is the BC Business Immigration Program where Vancouver is located. From the current point of view, after the application is approved, the whole family can land in Canada (enjoy the status of permanent residence). After landing, a minimum investment of 200,000 Canadian dollars is required to purchase or create one For business, you can apply for permanent residency status after one year of normal business operation. The feature of this project is that there is no language requirement and no requirement to submit a deposit, and the whole family can land in Canada in about 9 months at the earliest. This is a rare opportunity for people who do not have English skills and are eager to go to Canada. In addition, as the first law firm in Zibo City that provides immigration services by professional lawyers and has established cooperative relationships with many professional immigration lawyers in the United States, Canada and other countries, the reporter asked Director Cui Guanjun to discuss the next step of Canadian investment To make a prediction on immigration policies and trends, he pointed out: First of all, in the future, Canada may hope not to simply introduce funds, but to introduce high-quality corporate talents who can continue to generate income to promote the development of the domestic economy. Secondly, with the closure of Canadian federal investment immigration, immigration projects nominated by various provinces in 2014 will be quickly sought after. In the face of a large number of immigration applicants, it is a foregone conclusion. Third, the immigration projects nominated by each province have their own advantages. Applicants can only seize the quota if they are fully prepared in advance according to their actual conditions.
