Martin Luther on evil lawyers

“Lawyers’ craftiness is dangerous business.  A godly man ought to know the law only for the sake of defense, to enable him to understand and prevent the wicked tricks of the world….Other lawyers are godless; they seek only their own advantage and have the law in their control.” Martin Luther, Table Talk no. 3793, Luther’s Works, vol. 54, p. 274.

Dr. Luther understood lawyers and the legal profession very well.
