When on the topic of murder trials, one cannot help but imagine the poor moral values of the attorney defending the suspected evil doer, but we hardly ever wonder rather or not the attorneys are mentally effected themselves. More often than not, most attorneys can find themselves alone with the dark secrets of their wicked clients. This is due to a client’s right in the justice system known as the attorney-client privilege. The attorney-client privilege is the client’s right to refuse to disclose and to prevent any other person from disclosing confidential communications between the client and the attorney. One well known example of just how far this “privilege” can go is the murder case of Robert Garrow.
Further, he argues such views would cause lawyers to become selective with unpopular clients. Berger states: "The important public policy which underlies this tradition—the right to counsel—would be gravely jeopardized if every lawyer who takes an "unpopular" case, civil or criminal, would automatically become fair game for irresponsible reporters and editors who might, for example, describe the lawyer as a "mob mouthpiece" for representing a client with a serious prior criminal record, or as an "ambulance chaser" for representing a claimant in a personal injury
Conflict as property can be interpreted in numerous ways, some may agree with Christie, others may believe he is crazy for wanting to change a system that has been working so great for the past hundred years. Through personal knowledge on criminology and information gathered through the article “Conflicts as Property,” it has become evident that my belief on the subject directly correlates with Christie’s. One way Christie demonstrates his opinion on criminology is by showing what he believes is wrong with the system today. The first illustration of how the system is flawed is in the way lawyers decide to fight their case. According to Christie, lawyers tell us that our best argument in our fight against our neighbor are without any legal relevance.
In the beginning of the story, Judge Danforth is a highly respected judge that was brought in to settle the craziness of salem, but throughout the story he seems to have to accuse others to keep his authority.On page 79 Judge Danforth says“ Do you take it upon yourself to determine what this court shall believe and what it shall set aside” and also has to accuse John Proctor of “undermining the court” when Proctor is trying to prove his friends innocent. This is Danforth getting defensive and feeling attacked by anyone who has a differing opinion than him.And rather than looking into Proctors friends who are uptight citizens, turns the doubt onto others. In the middle Proctor says the Danforth “A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face! And it is my face, and yours, Danforth!
Human nature and pride show when an individual has traits of humanity, and responsibility is other needed. Atticus didn't give up on his visions throughout the novel, and this is very important to the younger readers, because his character was a role model to many. "Then Mr. Underwood’s meaning became clear: Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts, Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed," (Lee 82). This quote explains that not many people believed in Atticus, but he believed in himself and his case, and that's what mattered in the long run.
Like many Americans, Willy works his whole life trying to be a salesman to be able to provide for his family. Willy unwillingness to change, and over-relying on his charisma to lead him to become prosperous is the one of the primary cause of his downfall. The ideals of success that Willy pushes onto his sons seem preposterous. In Willy’s mind, neither of his two sons were able to live up to the expectation he had for them. From my point of view, I believe he wanted live through his sons and actually, have them fulfill his belief of success.

Synthesis Paper In many books and movies, there is a main idea of the protagonist going against, or overthrowing a corrupt government. This, without a doubt, makes a fantastic story line, but is it ever probable for real life? Under certain circumstances, it is appropriate to go against the government. If morals or civil rights are in question, or if harmful actions are occurring, it is appropriate. Theodore Roosevelt said, “The government is us; we are the government, you and I.” The government is an organization created to create and enforce rules.
In the film, “Abre los Ojos (1997),” César often claims that there is “no explanation” (Amenábar) for what has happened to him.

César is often questioned what happiness is to him.
Atticus has good morals, loves his children, respects everyone, and always keeps his promises which are good traits for anybody to have. Atticus was a fantastic lawyer, and worked extremely hard. When an inconvenience came around, and Bob Ewell spat in his face for defending a black man, Atticus just made a joke about it and didn’t let it bother him. “I wish Bob Ewell wouldn’t chew tobacco”(Lee 217). While Mr. Ewell exasperated his kids,
Due process is the fair treatment for all humans using the normal judicial system especially through entitlement by a citizen. The conflict between the parties is weakening the power of our national government because without Congress working together to create laws they are opposing each other. Even though this opposition may weaken us it is one of Congress 's’ implied powers. An implied power is a power that is practically given to the federal government, also known as an elastic clause. Congress’ arguments on gun control is wasting time, while they are arguing over something that may not ever be changed rather that passing new reasonable laws that can strengthen our country.

It is actual footage that Snowden recorded that was edited and used to produce a quality presentation of the events as they unfolded. The most popular thing to write about after watching Citizen Four would have to be the governments infringement upon privacy. In choosing to write about this a person would enter an ongoing debate about privacy, and would have to paint Edward Snowden as either a friend or a foe. Ultimately the persons writing would do nothing, but contribute to the noise. I will quickly contribute my two cents to the noise and then move on to something from the movie that I think creates more fruitful academic discussion.
